4434How the ball bounces
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=77011
An animation portraying the mathematics of a bouncing ballCalculus Tutorials and Problems
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=322660
This subsite of Mathematics Tutorials and Problems (with applets) is divided into Interactive Tutorials, Calculus Problems, and Calculus Questions, Answers and Solutions. Here the user will find applets with guided exercises and many examples and worked out problems applicable to the first year of Calculus.Population Modeling Applet
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=314085
In this applet, the user applies Euler's Method to modeling population growth using the Malthus exponential model and the Verhulst constrained growth model. After finding the Euler solution, the user can check the solution with the Adaptive Euler Approximation or with a slope field. Also, the user can enter an exact solution obtained from separating variables (or whatever) and again check the Euler solution graphically.Differential Equations Videos
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=349776
This is a complete set of videos for my on-line differential equations class. All standard topics are addressed: modeling, first order equations, constant coefficient linear equations, Euler and Runge Kutta methods, Laplace transforms, partial differential equations, series solutions and first order systems.Vector Field Applet
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=91106
This applet draws a vector field and generates integral curves at the click of a mouse.Bungee Jumping

Differential Equations visualization tooldfield and pplane
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=80693
dfield and pplane are tools to plot direction fields and phase plane portraits of ordinary differential equations. Integral curves are plotted by clicking on the initial values of interest.Project LINKS Module: Spring Mass
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=77019
A thorough treatment of the unforced spring mass system.Visual Differential Equation Solver
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=75573
Solves and graphically displays the solutions to ordinary differential equations. The user can select from an extensive list of standard "Left Hand" (homogeneous) and "Right Hand" (drive) "Sides" or graphically input a drive function. The user also graphically selects a fixed point of the solution. The solution is updated and displayed in real time as all changes are made.Harmonic Oscillator
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=89344
The "Harmonic Oscillator" applet can be used to visualize the solution to the second-order differential equation for a harmonic oscillator. The user can vary m, b, k, y0 (the initial position), and v0 (the initial velocity). When the parameters and initial conditions are changed, the applet plots the position of the mass as a function of time. Furthermore, the applet classifies the behavior and period of the motion (when the period exists), and it also determines the eigenvalues.
