This site is the parent site of an extensive collection of interactive mathematics authored by Alexander Bogomolny and includes an interactive monthly column . The content is accessible to the casual reader but offers much depth along with links to other high-quality resources. Altogether, this site is a mathematician's delight.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.Demos with Positive Impact
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=80956
Demos with Positive Impact is a collection of quick classroom demos that enhance the learning of mathematics content through animations, experiments etc. Each demo comes with stated objective, prerequisites, instructor notes and platform info, plus the level of the demo and credits. This setup appears conducive to quick inclusion into a class.

This is a website that is designed for use in extending more able pupils in maths. It includes investigations, interactive resources as well as printable resources. This resource can be used to extend children at difeerent stages. I found it to be really useful, not only are there resources for children there is also information to improve your own subject knowledge.Nick's Mathematical Puzzles
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=82017
A collection of puzzles ranging over geometry, probability, number theory, algebra, calculus, and logic. Hints are provided, along with fully worked solutions, and links to related mathematical topics.Probability/Statistics Object Library
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=79010
The Probability/Statistics Object Library is a virtual library of objects for use by teachers and students of probability and statistics. The library contains objects of two basic types, applets and components.An applet is a small, self-contained program that runs in a web page. Applets are intended to illustrate concepts and techniques in an interactive, dynamic way. A teacher or student can download an applet, drop it in a web page, and then add other elements of her own choice (such as expository text, data sets, and graphics). The applets in the library contain essentially no mathematical theory and thus can be used by students at various levels. The applets are intended to be small "micro worlds" where students can run virtual versions of random experiments and play virtual versions of statistical games.Components are the building blocks of applets and of other components. The Java objects are of three basic types: virtual versions of physical objects, such as coins, dice, cards, and sampling objects; virtual versions of mathematical objects, such as probability distributions, data structures, and random variables; user-interface objects such as custom graphs and tables. The Java objects can be used by teachers and students with some programming experience to create custom applets or components without having to program every detail from scratch, and thus in a fraction of the usual time. In addition, the components are extensively documented through a formal object model that specifies how the components relate to each other.Each object can be downloaded as a Java "bean" that includes all class and resource files needed for the object. An object in the form of a Java bean can be dropped into a builder tool (such as JBuilder or Visual Cafe) to expose the properties and methods of the object. Each object can also be downloaded in the form of a zip file that includes the source files and resource files for the object.Xah's Home Page
