4434Microsoft Excel as a Visual [Basic] Teaching and Learning Tool
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=600836
This site shows some of what Microsoft Excel can offer as a programming environment for the creation of interactive teaching and learning tools.The available "interactive" Excel filesPrimarily for Undergraduates in an Experiments-based Course- Demand, supply and equilibrium - Unit tax - Prohibition - Labor market problems - Pollution - Long-run equilibrium - Productivity - Comparative advantage - BargainingPrimarily for More Advanced Microeconomics and Quantitative Work - Comparative statics - Preferences - Isoquants Contract curves - Walrasian equilibrium - Game theory - Statistics and probability - Financial Pure mathematics - PhysicsMicro theory :: Long-run Cost: The envelope theorem
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=83535
By means of four spin buttons, the user sets the parameters for a parabola and the parabolic path of its vertex so that the implied family of parabolas generate an envelope that is also a parabola. An accompanying graph automatically updates. Another spin button gives the user some control over the spacing of five parabolas in the family. A sixth spin button allows the user to slide the "base" parabola along the envelope. Click the image above left to see a screen capture of the interface. Jon Peltier of Peltier Technical Services, Inc., contributed materially to this module.Probability :: continuous :: chi-squared
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=83422
By means of two spin buttons, the user changes the degrees of freedom and a particular value of a chi-squared distributed random variable. Two probabilities and the graph with the pdf and cdf update automatically. Click on the image, above left; "how to use" this worksheet should be intuitive.Probability :: continuous :: exponential
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=83424
By means of two spin buttons, the user changes the parameter in the density function and a particular value of an exponentially-distributed random variable. Two probabilities and the graph with the pdf and cdf update automatically. Click on the image, above left; "how to use" this worksheet should be intuitive.Probability :: continuous :: uniform
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=83210
By means of four spin buttons, the user changes the interval over which a uniformly distributed random variable is defined and an interval of values for the random variable; various probabilities and the graph with the pdf and cdf update automatically. Click on the image, above left; "how to use" this worksheet should be intuitive.Probability :: continuous :: Weibull
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=83351
By means of three spin buttons, the user changes the parameters of the distribution and the value of a Weibull-distributed random variable. Various probabilities and the graph with the pdf and cdf update automatically. Click on the image, above left; "how to use" this worksheet should be intuitive.Math :: conic sections :: parabola
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=83703
By means of three spin buttons, the user specifies the parameters of a parabola: the quadratic- and linear-term coefficients and the vertical intercept. An accompanying chart updates automatically. Seven additional spin buttons give the user control of the chart and three buttons reset the values, place the vertex in the chart and return a point on the parabola to the vertex. Click on the image, above left, for a screen capture of the interface.Math: conic sections; eccentricity
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=83165
By means of four spin buttons, the user specifies the directrix, the focus and the eccentricity for a conic section; an accompanying chart updates automatically. Six additional spin buttons give the user control of the chart and three command buttons respectively initialize an ellipse, hyperbola and parabola. Click on the image, above left, for a screen capture of the interface.Micro theory :: contract curves :: Cobb-Douglas and Cobb-Douglas
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=83219
By means of four spin buttons, the user sets the relative values of the exponents in the Cobb-Douglas utility functions and the endowments of two goods. The accompanying graph automatically updates, showing the contract curve between the two traders. Click the image above left to see the interface.Micro theory :: contract curves :: perfect complements and Cobb-Douglas
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=83217
By means of five spin buttons, the user sets the coefficients for the indifference curves for the perfect complements, the relative values of the exponents in the Cobb-Douglas utility function and the endowments of two goods. The accompanying graph automatically updates, showing the contract curve between the two traders. Click the image above left to see the interface.
