Mathematical Visualization Toolkit
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.

being introduced to the site by my instructor. I believe it to be an awesome
resource. Yes, I do believe that the materials accurately present concepts and
models that are educationally significant. Additionally, the potential
effectiveness for enhancing the learning process I found to be significant. I
found the material and the website to be user friendly, however, at a quick
glance it would appear crowded with information and necessary to focus on each
point specifically without a general overview present.

This has been one of the best graphing programs I've seen so far. The software covers a variety of mathematical fields, especially calculus and differential equations. This can be used both in class and at home for students who want to explore more about Math and Physics.
It takes a little bit of time to get accustomed to this program. However, the interface is friendly, easy to use. Plus, all the questions are answered in detail in the help section.

This is an excellent online graphing utility. This software can be utilized from the basic math courses all the way up to the very intermediate math courses. However, there may need to be some directions included on how to effectively use the utility. Nevertheless, the help section gives very detailed explanations. Overall, the end user aspect is user friendly.
