4434Mathematical Visualization Toolkit
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=89767
This site consists of a collection of plotting and solving applets featuring a uniform user interface. This site was selected as the 2005 MERLOT Classics Award winner for the Mathematics discipline due to its value and effectiveness as a set of teaching/learning tools. Visualizing mathematical concepts, especially in three-dimensional space, can be quite difficult for students. These tools and applications enable students to see the concepts in action and to come a deeper understanding of the underlying mathematics. In addition, the collaboration between the faculty, students and Sun Microsystems staff who together designed and constructed these tools was quite unusual and impressive. The collaboration itself is an inspiring model.National Library of Virtual Manipulatives

Large collection of platform independent, interactive, java applets and activities for K-12 mathematics and teacher education.Numerical integration simulation
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=75032
This is a Java-enhanced tutorial that allows students to learn about the rectangular, midpoint, and trapezoidal methods of numerical integration.Eric Weisstein's World of Mathematics
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=76247
This site provides an extremely large encyclopedia-style collection of material related to mathematics at the college level and beyond. Much of the material deals with advanced topics. A large number of animated GIFs and java applets are presented as visual aids and the site has won numerous web awards. The World of Mathematics is hosted by Wolfram Research, Inc., and is offered as a free service to the mathematics community.The Math Forum - Internet Mathematics Library

A huge list of resources in various topics of mathematics and math education.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.Solving System of Equations with Application to Matrix Inversion
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=79973
This JavaScript solves up to ten by ten systems of linear equations. It also allows the user to find the inverse of a matrix.Methods for Numerical Integration
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=89893
This applet allows a person to test several numerical integration approximation methods by having the user fill out theleft and right endpoint fields, type in the formula, select the method, and pressing the calculate button. For example trytyping in -1 for the left endpoint, 1 for the right endpoint, and y=x^2 for the formula then press calculate. For each method selected, the estimated integral for that method will appear in the text area at the bottom. Certainfunctions will also appear on the graph on the left. The java graph class is still experimental and does not use equalstretch principles. y = x2 from -1 to 1 will appear the same as y = x2 from -100 to 100.Bottomless Worksheet of Graphing Method
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=82880
Use this Bottomless Worksheet to get endless practice in solving systems of linear equations in two variables with the graphing method. Ten new problems for you to solve, printed copies, and answer sheets are just a click away. (Special care is taken to create problems with graphable solutions, using integers and/or quarters.)Crank-Nicolson Unsteady State Heat Conduction
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=76093
This Excel application computes and dynamically presents the one-dimensional temperature profiles in an isotropic solid. All computations are performed in Visual BASIC macros. The boundary conditions are convection at the surface and zero flux at the center. The user may select rectilinear, cylindrical, or spherical coordinates. All heat transfer parameters are entered by the user including time step size. The results are graphed at a frequencty set by the user. Tabular results are presented for intermediate time steps elected by the user.
