4434Principles 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.Equation Plotter

This helps one to sketch equations, and calculate statistical parameters of Central Tendency, Skewness, Quartiles, Correlation, Simple Regression, etc.... It will enable students to see the meaning of math expressions by using graphs.From Linear to Nonlinear Optimization: The Missing Chapter
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=80573
It presents a solution algorithm for a large class of problems with linear constraints and a continuous objective function.IDEA: Internet Differential Equations Activities
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=86832
Quoted from the site: "IDEA is an interdisciplinary effort to provide students and teachers around the world with computer based activities for differential equations in a wide variety of disciplines." Currently, IDEA contains nearly twenty activities. These are applications of differential equations to areas as diverse as bungee jumping and salmon migration. Some of these applications are presented as text with illustrations, but others include interactive graphics.Inventory Control Models

The diagram shows a geometric construction for a cubic spline curve.The Circulation of Currency in the Macro-economy (Closed System)
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=601236
This model of the macroeconomy (closed social system) is as comprehensive as possible without it being too complicated (according to Prof. Einstein's dictum for providing in an explanation as much simplification, but not too much). In the past the tradition of 2 and 3 sector models (householder/producer etc.) were oversimplified. In this model there are 6 "entities" all of which play vital roles in the complete system. Their 19 individual roles or functions can be seen when the various flows of goods, services and valuable documents are examined. They each take an algebraic symbol (for later use in analysis). These flows are mutual, money always passing in the returning reciprocal direction. It is seen that the 3 Smithian factors of production (Land, Labour and Durable Capital Goods) are all properly included along with their 3 returns, Ground-Rent, Wages and Interest (Dividends etc.).
