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.Interactive Mathematics--Probability
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=79173
This site contains an extensive collection of java applets involving probability miscellany and puzzles. Written by Alexander Bogomolny, these applets are designed to engage the reader in interactive investigations. Background material is provided and the site serves as an excellent educational resource.The Prime Pages
