4434Geogebra
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=274019
GeoGebra is a free and multi-platform dynamic mathematics software for education in secondary schools that joins geometry, algebra and calculus. On the one hand, GeoGebra is a dynamic geometry system--you can do constructions with points, vectors, segments, lines, conic sections as well as functions and change them dynamically afterwards; on the other hand, equations and coordinates can be entered directly. Thus, GeoGebra has the ability to deal with variables for numbers, vectors and points, finds derivatives and integrals of functions and offers commands like Root or Extremum. These two views are characteristic of GeoGebra: an expression in the algebra window corresponds to an object in the geometry window and vice versa.A History of Pi
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=235021
This site provides an extensive and cross-linked history of the development of pi. It is a subpage of the MacTutor History of Mathematics Archive that is listed separately in MERLOT.Music and Computers
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=760619
Growing out of classes in computer music at Dartmouth College this is web version of a book that is intended as a "user-friendly" introduction to music and computers. AN excellent introduction to what is sound.Seeing Math--Secondary Interactives
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=240524
Seeing Math™ has developed a series of interactive software for grades 6-12 that clarify key mathematical ideas for teachers and students of algebra. Free for educational uses.Escher and the Droste Effect
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=83200
The goal of this site is to visualize the mathematical structure behind M.C. Escher's picture called "Print Gallery" (1956). The visualization itself is largely non-mathematical and is accomplished through many still images and animations. The actual mathematics, involving conformal mappings of the complex plane, is contained in a pdf copy of the original AMS publication. The Droste Effect refers to any image that contains itself on a smaller scale.Mathematics in Art and Architecture
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=82790
This is a set of materials developed at the National University of Singapore concerning the connections between mathematics and art and architecture. The author emphasizes that mathematics is not just about formulas and logic, but about patterns, symmetry, structure, shape and beauty. There are powerpoint tutorials, text and graphics descriptions, and a wealth of links to other valuable resources.A Model of a Hydroplane
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=223098
This is a subsite associated with the parent site called IDEA (Internet Differential Equation Activities). The activity on this page explores the effect of drag in modeling the motion of a hydroplane racing boat using the basic force balancing equation. Interactive Java applet graphing utilities provide visualizations of the results. Introduction to Pitch Systems in Tonal Music
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=571045
This series is one part of UC Irvine's Musicianship 15 ABC sequence for music majors. An understanding of music notation and basic musical terms is helpful but not required for these presentations. The math involved is basic. Pitch systems use mathematics to organize audible phenomenon for creative expression. The cognitive processes we develop through exposure to music comprise a kind of applied mathematics; our emotional responses to musical nuance grow out of a largely unconscious mastery of the patterns and structures in music. This series of presentations covers the basic mathematics and cognitive phenomenon found in the tonal system used in Western music and much of the music of the world. Over the course of several presentations we will explore basic concepts of pitch and frequency, the organizing rules of tonal systems, and the mathematical construction of basic scales and chords. The reasoning and purpose of equal temperament, the standard tuning system for tonal music, will be explored in this context. Presentations will include graphics and computer applications designed specifically to illustrate these concepts.World Images Kiosk
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=84349
The WorldImages database contains almost 50,000 images, is global in coverage and is not limited to art. WorldImages is accessible anywhere and its images can be freely used for non-profit educational purposes. The images can be located using many search techniques, and for convenience they are organized into some 440 portfolios. Portfolio categories include the following WorldImages sets:Art & Art History,Cultural & Social Interactions,History, Politics & Warfare,Science, Technology & Mathematics,Music, Drama & Literature,Natural World,People & Portraits,Religion, Myth & Magic, andMaterial Culture & Daily Life.Electronic Journals Library
