4434The Math Forum - Internet Mathematics Library
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=89910
A huge list of resources in various topics of mathematics and math education.Finite Math for Windows
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=237202
Finite Math for Windows is a software package that enables students to easily solve problems and/or check their work in Finite Mathematics. It consists of 17 modules that correspond to the chapters in most Finite Mathematics books. Use of the software is intended to move the students from the calculator world into the more business-like world of software to help prepare them for their careers.Coastline (Mathematics, Fractals)
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=74562
Includes teacher generated activities. A section of the coast line is randomly given an angle (two lines), resulting in a smooth coastline gradually getting rougher and more fractal each click.Principles of Calculus Modeling: An Interactive Approach
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=297526
Quoted from the site: This Web site contains a page for each section of the book Principles of Calculus Modeling, an Interactive Approach. A section page includes a summary of the section, an on-screen applet demonstrating the key point of the section, and what you should know after studying the material of the section. It also includes links to * additional in-depth applets, * worked examples, * videos of problems being worked out by students and teachers, * a quiz (with answers) that you can take to test your knowledge, * a link to a PDF document with of all the exercises of the section, * a link to these same exercises in interactive form with answer feedback, and * hypertext links to other supplementary materials on the Web that you might find useful, such as sample exams.Model Neurons and Fast-Slow Systems
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=229222
This is a sub-site of IDEA (Internet Differential Equations Activities). This learning material is a lab-type exploration of how a neuron responds to external stimulus. The physical system is modelled using the Morris-Lecar differential equations, which are similar to the Hodgkin-Huxley equations. For phase plane analysis, a Java-applet graphing utility is provided.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. The El Niño / Southern Oscillation
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=229221
This is a sub-site of IDEA (Internet Differential Equations Activities). The qualitative aspects of El Niño - Southern Oscillation, called ENSO, is here modeled in terms of simple differential equations. The model is explored with a series of exercises. These exercises deal with equilibria and stability, and a Java-applet graphical DE solver is provided.The Regression Line
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=81269
This site is part of the NCTM's Student i-Math Investigations website. It introduces the regression line and incorporates an applet that lets students easily observe the relation between a set of data points and the associated regression line.Applied Management Science
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=75585
Decision-Making is central to human activity. Thus, we are all decision-makers. However, a "good" decision making starts with a consecutive-focused-thinking process that encompasses many disciplines of study. This site offers information on applied management science and an introduction to general operations research. It describes deterministic; and probabilistic models; lists books on operations research and management science; and links to related Web sites.Cryptography on the Web
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=85236
Bruce Schneier is considered the guru of technological security. His personal website includes an index of 1427 Cryptography Papers by different authors that are available online; as well as essays and editorials written by Schneier. He also offers a free, monthly newsletter, which regularly has serious discussions, debates, and critiques about security (cryptography). You can link to information about his company, Counterpane Internet Security, Inc. or to purchase books that Schneier has written on cryptography.
