4434Simulations/Demonstrations in Statistics
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=75489
This Virtual Lab contains simulations for a variety of statistical concepts, including ANOVA, correlation, Regression, T-tests, Goodness of Fit, Histograms, etc. Each statistical topic can be searched and appropriate simulations or demonstrations are shown. Graphics that can be manipulated are shown, instructions are provided, and exercises are included. Links are also provided for definitions.Chance Teaching Aids
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=90110
This is a site that contains a number of types of material that can be used in teaching about chance probability. Lesson plans, syllabi, suggested activities, and data sets are available. The data sets contain interesting information for students such as: quarterback passing rating data, baseball streaks, and baseball salaries that can be used to illustrate means, medians, etc.Differential Equations

״Here are my online notes for my differential equations course that I teach here at Lamar University. Despite the fact that these are my “class notes”, they should be accessible to anyone wanting to learn how to solve differential equations or needing a refresher on differential equations.I’ve tried to make these notes as self contained as possible and so all the information needed to read through them is either from a Calculus or Algebra class or contained in other sections of the notes.״ GeoGebra

'The following mathlets are designed for the students in my geometry classes to review basic algebra skills in such a way that they can check their answers and/or get hints as to how to proceed.The idea behind these "procedure-based" dynamic worksheets is to provide students the opportunity to review and practice algebra skills with problems they create, while at the same time providing a means for students to check their answers and to get a hint if needed. The hints will walk the student through the problem in a step by step manner.'Calculus 3

״Here are my online notes for my Calculus III course that I teach here at Lamar University. Despite the fact that these are my “class notes”, they should be accessible to anyone wanting to learn Calculus III or needing a refresher in some of the topics from the class.These notes do assume that the reader has a good working knowledge of Calculus I topics including limits, derivatives and integration. It also assumes that the reader has a good knowledge of several Calculus II topics including some integration techniques, parametric equations, vectors, and knowledge of three dimensional space.״ The Real Numbers

This lesson received an honorable mention in the 2012 SoftChalk Lesson Challenge.'In this lesson we begin to examine what happens when we have a list of numbers, known as a sequence. We will determine when these lists of numbers, or sequences, have a pattern, when we can generalize that pattern to find any term and what it looks like if we sum up the numbers in the sequence. Let's start off with a few definitions and some terminology and from there we will see how we can determine their behavior.'Introduction to Differential Equations
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=859871
This lesson received an honorable mention for the 2011 SoftChalk Lesson Challenge.'Differential equations show up in many areas of science and technology. In fact, they turn up any time there is a relation involving some continuously varying quantities and ther rates of change. We have actually dealt with differntial equations before. A common modeling problem involving differential equations is the determination of the velocity of a ball falling which has an acceleration which is the acceleration due to gravity minus the acceleration due to air resistance. This is a differential equation because the derivative of the velocity of the ball depends on the velocity, thus finding the velocity as a function of time involves.' solving a differential equation.'In this section we willExamine the basic form of differential equationsVerify solutions to differential equationsDetermine slope fields for differential equationsFind solutions to differential equations numerically using Euler's methodFind solutions to differential equations using seperation of variables.'Geometry

This is a free online course offered by the Saylor Foundation.'“Everything is numbers.” This phrase was uttered by the lead character, Dr. Charlie Epps, on the hit television show “NUMB3RS.” If everything has a mathematical underpinning, then it follows that everything is somehow mathematically connected, even if it is only in some odd, “six degrees of separation (or Kevin Bacon)” kind of way.Geometry is the study of space (for now, mainly two-dimensional, with some three-dimensional thrown in) and the relationships of objects contained inside. It is one of the more relatable math courses, because it often answers that age-old question, “When am I ever going to use this in real life?” Look around you right now. Do you see any triangles? Can you spot any circles? Do you see any books that look like they are twice the size of other books? Does your wall have paint on it?In geometry, you will explore the objects that make up our universe. Most people never give a second thought to how things are constructed, but there are geometric rules at play. Most people never think twice about a rocket launch, but if that rocket is not launched at an exact angle, it will miss its target. A football field has to be measured out to be a rectangle; if you used another shape, such as a trapezoid, that would give an unfair advantage to one team, because that one team would have more space to work with.In this course, you will study the relationships between lines and angles. Have you ever looked at a street map? Believe it or not, there is a lot of geometry on a map, as you will see from this course. You will learn to calculate how much space an object covers, which is useful if you ever have to, say, buy some paint. You will learn to determine how much space is inside of a three-dimensional object, which is useful for those times you are trying to fit four suitcases, three kids, two adults, and a dog into the back of your vehicle.These are just some of the topics you will be learning. As you will quickly see, everything is not just numbers; it is also relationships. Even nature itself knows this. What did the little acorn say when it grew up? “Gee, I’m a tree!”'
