4434Med-Calc Tutorial
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=84322
An interactive multimedia tutorial for healthcare professionals wishing to refresh math skills and learn how to calculate medication dosages and intravenous (IV) rates. The tutorial has three modules. Each module has includes a quiz. The first module covers information about fractions, decimals, ratios, proportions, and percentage. The second module covers information about conversions, medication administration, and dosage calculation. The third module covers information about intraveneous infusions including tubing calculation and intraveneous flow rates. Key words: Medication calculation; Intravenous flow rate calculation; Mathematics principles21st Century Information Fluency Project Portal

This interactive tool lets you fill in only the information needed for the style citation you want, print or electronic media, and the citation is formatted for you.Fundamentals of Remote Sensing
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=80706
An online tutorial on Remote Sensing and its applications. This interactive module is intended as an overview at a senior high school or early university level and touches on physics, environmental sciences, mathematics, computer sciences and geography. [ from the site introduction]Mathematical Biology Pages
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=81469
This series of pages describe the math necessary to describe several biological processes including exponential group, outbreaks, and the application of chaos theory to population biology. All are illustrated with animations which allow the users to interact with the concepts. There is a separate section devoted to the use of calculus in the as applied to biological issues.Tutorial on Vectors and Vector Algebra
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=89590
A tutorial that uses a variety of applets, popup explanation and hint windows, images, and quiz tools. Covers the parallelogram, head-to-tail, and component method, as well as vector subtraction.Understanding Entropy
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=82550
In contrast to the common but misleading "entropy is disorganization" line, this tutorial describes entropy as a measure of the spreading and sharing of thermal energy. This concept provides rational, non-mathematical explanations of the effects of temperature change on reaction equilibria and on the colligative properties of solutions.ActionScript 3 Tutorials
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=269595
These tutorials for creating learning objects come with an overview, some basic information on its constructs and interactions, and a set of guidelines. This interactive set of tools can be used by educators in several disciplines including both mathematics and the sciences to create their own customized, web-based learning aids. It is endorsed by the Mathematical Association of America's online Digital Classroom.Astronomy Online Tutor
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=840434
We have deveoped and provide access to an extensive, interactive self-review library covering 26 lecture modules in general astronomy to give students instruction tailored to their rate of learning and mathematical abilities, with personal feedback, as they integrate new knowledge into their existing view of the universe. Students typically complete 1,600 problems over a semester, drawing from an archive of over 12,000 questions presenting both conceptual and mathematically-focused challenges.A companion instructor analysis tool for reviewing student work archives copies of each exercise completed by every student, including the details of incorrect answers, and reveals trends with topic and time for individuals and groups. Instructors are able to monitor individual and group progress, tracking every facet of student action and the global response to individual topics of study.Individual accounts are available by request to both students and to intructors and their classes of students.Biology Lessons, San Diego State University
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=86173
Sixteen biology lessons designed for prospective elementary school teachers; also used in middle and high school classes. Use simple materials and contain many questions to prompt student thinking & understanding. Teacher's guides available.Circles of Light: The Mathematics of Rainbows
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=90677
Online tutorial/lab is based on a module developed by Steven Janke and published in Modules in Undergraduate Mathematics and its Applications, 1992.
