A collection of interactive skill tests for music theory, musicianship and music appreciation.Exploring Multivariable Calculus
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=437177
The main goal of this project is to improve student understanding of the geometric nature of multivariable calculus concepts, i.e., to help them develop accurate geometric intuition about multivariable calculus concepts and the various relationships among them.To accomplish this goal, the project includes four parts:· Creating a Multivariable Calculus Visualization applet using Java and publishing it on a website: web.monroecc.edu/calcNSF· Creating a series of focused applets that demonstrate and explore particular 3D calculus concepts in a more dedicated way.· Developing a series of guided exploration/assessments to be used by students to explore calculus concepts visually on their own.· Dissemination of these materials through presentations and poster sessions at math conferences and through other publications.Intellectual Merit: This project provides dynamic visualization tools that enhance the teaching and learning of multivariable calculus. The visualization applets can be used in a number of ways:- Instructors can use them to visually demonstrate concepts and verify results during lectures.- Students can use them to explore the concepts visually outside of class, either using a guided activity or on their own.- Instructors can use the main applet (CalcPlot3D) to create colorful graphs for visual aids (color overheads), worksheets, notes/handouts, or tests. 3D graphs or 2D contour plots can be copied from the applet and pasted into a word processor like Microsoft Word.- Instructors will be able to use CalcPlot3D to create lecture demonstrations containing particular functions they specify and/or guided explorations for their own students using a scripting feature that is being integrated with this applet.The guided activities created for this project will provide a means for instructors to get their students to use these applets to actively explore and “play” with the calculus concepts.Paul Seeburger, the Principal Investigator (PI) for this grant project, has a lot of experience developing applets to bring calculus concepts to life. He has created 100+ Java applets supporting 5 major calculus textbooks (Anton, Thomas, Varberg, Salas, Hughes-Hallett). These applets essentially make textbook figures come to life. See examples of these applets at www.monroecc.edu/wusers/pseeburger/.Broader Impacts: This project will provide reliable visualization tools for educators to use to enhance their teaching in calculus and also in various Physics/Engineering classes. It is designed to promote student exploration and discovery, providing a way to truly “see” how the concepts work in motion and living color. The applets and support materials will be published and widely disseminated through the web and conference presentations.Implicit Association Tests
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=83803
This is the site for the Implicit Assocation Test, which is a new method for demonstrating and measuring consious-unconsious divergencies. It includes sample tests, related information, and an invitaion to participate in the ongoing Project Implicit that includes test on 90 different topics. Among the most interesting sample tests are those that indicate unconsious race, age, and sexuality biases.Chinese Multimedia
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=82930
This supplementary Chinese course of 22 lessons in simplified characters at elementary-intermediate level is suitable for students who have already learned Chinese for at least 3 months. Multimedia materials include video and audio files, interactive character writing exercises, interactive grammar drills, multiple choice vocabulary tests, and indexes for grammar and vocabulary.Hypothesis Test for a Mean
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=79516
This Java applet tutorial prompts the user to input the components of a hypothesis test for the mean. Hints are provided whenever the user enters an incorrect value. Once the steps are completed and the user has chosen the correct conclusion for accepting or rejecting the null hypothesis, a statement summarizing the conclusion is displayed. The applet is supported by an explanation of the steps in hypothesis testing and a description of one-tailed and two-tailed tests.Interpersonal Communication Skills Test
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=87772
This simple on-line survey consists of 34 questions that assesses one's interpersonal communication skills. Test can be taken on-line, and results/feedback is immediate.Simulations/Demonstrations in Statistics
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=75489
This Virtual Lab contains simulations for a variety of statistical concepts, including ANOVA, correlation, Regression, T-tests, Goodness of Fit, Histograms, etc. Each statistical topic can be searched and appropriate simulations or demonstrations are shown. Graphics that can be manipulated are shown, instructions are provided, and exercises are included. Links are also provided for definitions.Hypothesis Test for a Proportion
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=79517
This Java applet tutorial prompts the user to input the components of a hypothesis test for a proportion. Hints are provided whenever the user enters an incorrect value. Once the steps are completed and the user has chosen the correct conclusion for accepting or rejecting the null hypothesis, a statement summarizing the conclusion is displayed. The applet is supported by an explanation of the steps in hypothesis testing and a description of one-tailed and two-tailed tests.Learning Strategies Database
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=78650
This site provides information on test-taking strategies, including pre-test, general strategies for any types of test, specific requirements of certain types of tests, and post-test evaluation of performance. The purpose of these strategies is to improve student performance on exams. A second, but related, purpose is to reduce exam anxiety. Types of tests covered range from true-false to multiple-choice to essay tests.Chemguide: Helping you to Understand Chemistry
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=80233
This site has information on atomic structure and bonding, inorganic chemistry, physical chemistry, instrument analysis, basic organic chemistry, and organic reaction mechanisms. There is also a link to Dr. Phil Brown?s website where you can get questions for tests. The site?s information is based on the syllabus for UK students. The site does not have many diagrams or any interactive material. However, the information is detailed and clear. Students in high school and undergraduate general chemistry classes will find it very helpful.
