This is a module for use in differential or integral calculus. It looks at a differential equation model for world population growth.

This gallery of images and animations shows many examples of how the POVray ray-tracing software can be used to display examples in three-dimensional geometry.

Osslets (open source, sharable mathlets) are free and flexible interactive components you can easily add to your Web pages. The collection includes ready-to-use curriculum units.

A module that uses Riemann sums and other numerical methods to investigate of the area of a complex region, specifically, a map of Virginia

An article describing the WWW Interactive Mathematics Server (WIMS), designed for supporting intensive mathematics work via the Internet with server-side interactivity.
This dynamic Java applet developed with support from the NSF (Dynamic Visualization Tools for Multivariable Calculus, DUE-CCLI Grant #0736968)) allows the user to simultaneously graph multiple 3D surfaces, space curves, parametric surfaces, vector fields, contour plots, and more in a freely rotatable 3D plot. This tool is intended as a dynamic visualization and exploration environment for multivariable calculus. Use it to illustrate the geometric relationships of many of the concepts of multivariable calculus, including dot and cross products, velocity and acceleration vectors for motion in the plane and in space, the TNB-frame, the osculating circle and curvature, surfaces, contour plots and level surfaces, partial derivatives, gradient vectors and gradient fields, Lagrange multiplier optimization, double integrals as volume, defining the limits of integration for double and triple integrals, parametric surfaces, vector fields, line integrals, and more. See the corresponding web page for documentation and a list of guided explorations developed for students to use with this exploration applet.
This Math Flash Forum Sharing Area applet provides students with practice with polar coordinates and the radian measure of angles through a simple, interactive game.

An article on the use of technology to stimulate mathematical thinking even by the least likely students

This mathlet simulates a predator-prey system of foxes and rabbits over time.
Useful for teaching as well as artistic endeavors, this applet allows the user to build a "seed" for a recursive process that constructs complex and fascinating fractal images.
