This article looks at several geometric, straightedge-and-compass constructions for trisecting a line segment, comparing them based on the numbers of lines or circles required for the construction.

This application allows linear algebra exercises to be completed using a server side program, which makes the tools browser independent. Every step of each solution is fully explained.
This paper describes a Flash-based OSSLET that we have used at the United States Military Academy with first year calculus students as a vehicle for motivating vectors, matrices, and linear and affine transformations.

A Developers' Area article on the construction and collection of quality mathlets.

This article analyzes the physical and mathematical properties of the mirascope and models the mirascope using dynamic learning technology

This Biological ESTEEM module in the Ecology Category consists of a Java applet along with more than 100 food web matrices in the form of Excel worksheets. After manipulating these transformed matrices, the patterns are visualized.
This Java applet allows the user to experiment with Riemann sums. It can also be used to approximate definite integrals or find upper and lower bounds to the exact value of a definite integral, using Riemann sums.

The use of JavaMath is explained via an example and ideas for new types of web service are discussed.

about JOMA
This collection of mathlets comprise a companion for modeling assignments (primarily for calculus) designed to give students hands-on experience describing motion as a combination of basic functions.
