Large collection of platform independent, interactive, java applets and activities for K-12 mathematics and teacher education.ScienceU--Geometry Center
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=75574
The Geometry Center contains a variety of appealing material, both textual and visual, including interactive exhibits, simulations, graphics software and a library of reference materials pertaining to geometric tilings and polyhedra.Dimensions (geometry)
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=350912
This is a free, online textbook that provides information on dimensions, from longtitude and latitude to the proof of a theorem of geometry. There are 9 chapters, each 13 minutes long. The book contains a total of 117 minutes of video, but can also be read as an ordinary textbook.The film can be enjoyed by anyone, provided the chapters are well-chosen. There are 9 chapters, each 13 minutes long. Chapters 3-4, 5-6 and 7-8 are double chapters, but apart from that, they are more or less independent of each other.Isometric Drawing Tool

A page of Java applets to demonstrate basic geometry.Self-Assess Algebra Review
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=434072
This site is a selection of mathlets designed for "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.״Thales' Circle

Thales' Theorem: A triangle inscribed in a semicircle is right.Encouraging Mathematical Thinking, Discourse around a Rich Problem
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=88039
This videopaper by the Math Forum's Bridging Research and Practice Group (BRAP) of teacher practitioners and Math Forum Staff opens a conversation around the use of discourse as a basis for encouraging students' mathematical thinking and supporting teachers' professional growth. Reflecting an attempt to integrate practice and research, it reports on findings culled from discussions of research articles and chapters, classroom practice, and videotapes of classroom teaching, noting links between these findings and research into student learning and instruction. Video clips from the teachers' classrooms illustrate the interventions discussed; a challenge problem and lessons for various levels are detailed; corresponding student predictions are presented; and readers' reactions and input are encouraged throughout.
