Biography of Thales of Miletus (624BC-547BC)World of Mathematics--Probability & Statistics
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=76721
This is a sub-page of the large and comprehensive Eric Weisstein's World of Mathematics site which is separately reviewed elsewhere on MERLOT. At the time of review this probability and statistics area listed 19 subtopics including Bayesian analysis, descriptive statistics, probability, random numbers, random walks, and statistical tests. Approximately 350 separate items on probability and statistics were included.Mathematics Tutorials and Problems (with applets)
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=317524
Quoted from the site: [This site contains...] "Free mathematics tutorials to help you explore and gain deep understanding of math topics." The math topics covered include 1) Precalculus Tutorials 2) Calculus Tutorials and Problems 3) Geometry Tutorials and Problems 3) Trigonometry Tutorials and Problems for Self Tests 4) Elementary statistics and probability tutorials 5) Applications of mathematics in physics and engineering. And much more, including many applets.Linear Functions

This applet is a web based lab that explores the properties of linear functions. It is one in a series of other precalculus labs by the same author. The directions for using Graph Explorer are contained in the Cartesian Coordinates applet.Exponential Functions and the Number e
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=84784
This applet is a web based lab that explores the properties of exponential functions and ways to define the number e. It is one in a series of other precalculus labs by the same author. The directions for using Graph Explorer are contained in the Cartesian Coordinates applet.Probability/Statistics Object Library
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=79010
The Probability/Statistics Object Library is a virtual library of objects for use by teachers and students of probability and statistics. The library contains objects of two basic types, applets and components.An applet is a small, self-contained program that runs in a web page. Applets are intended to illustrate concepts and techniques in an interactive, dynamic way. A teacher or student can download an applet, drop it in a web page, and then add other elements of her own choice (such as expository text, data sets, and graphics). The applets in the library contain essentially no mathematical theory and thus can be used by students at various levels. The applets are intended to be small "micro worlds" where students can run virtual versions of random experiments and play virtual versions of statistical games.Components are the building blocks of applets and of other components. The Java objects are of three basic types: virtual versions of physical objects, such as coins, dice, cards, and sampling objects; virtual versions of mathematical objects, such as probability distributions, data structures, and random variables; user-interface objects such as custom graphs and tables. The Java objects can be used by teachers and students with some programming experience to create custom applets or components without having to program every detail from scratch, and thus in a fraction of the usual time. In addition, the components are extensively documented through a formal object model that specifies how the components relate to each other.Each object can be downloaded as a Java "bean" that includes all class and resource files needed for the object. An object in the form of a Java bean can be dropped into a builder tool (such as JBuilder or Visual Cafe) to expose the properties and methods of the object. Each object can also be downloaded in the form of a zip file that includes the source files and resource files for the object.Quadratic Functions
