Flash | Commercial software needed to create content. Therefore in danger of being oblivious within a few year years (i.e. acquisition by other company promoting other standard.). Example Sound and multimedia works well. Example. |
Java | Widely used in education. Different Java versions and browser incompatibilities slowed development a bit. Can be programmed on any platform. Risky when using sound but not impossible: (Example). |
Javascript | Works in general. Can be developed on any platform. The limited vector graphics support makes development difficult. No sound. Example 1, Example 2. |
Some of the links below were chosen to give bad examples. |
Mathlets | Big link collection. Does not work on all browsers however |
www.falstad.com | Nice collection of Java applets, mostly physics. |
David Ambrose applets | Ambrose is at Duke. Some of the applets are useful. |
Calculus applet collection | Some of the applets are ok, many are confusing and hard to "learn". |
Calculus applet collection | Various calculus applets and links. |
Math Tools | Math Tools, mostly calculus |
Eigenvalue applets | Get a feel, what an eigenvector is. |
Eigenvalues applets | Eigenvalue is displayed when given matrix or vectors are iterated. |
Linear map applet | Simple doodling with linear maps in the plane. |
Fourier Syntheses | Maybe one of the best Fourier series applets around. With sound. |
Fourier Syntheses | Gives a feel on Fourier, but is rather limited. |
Fourier Syntheses | Shows Fourier approximation. Nice. |
Quantum evolution applet | Illustrates quantum evolution, a linear evolution. |
Line integral applet | Get a feel for line integrals. |
Real Line integral applet | Real version of a complex line integral applet. |
Dot product applet | Very limited. |
Cross product applet | Dito. It is no problem to visualize this with your own fingers. |
Lagrange multiplier | A simple figure illustrates this as well. |
Level curves | Level curves of a paraboloid. A bit too simple. |
Differene and Sums | Add and subtract vectors. |
Slope | Rather precalculus, to illustrate slopes and polynomials. |
Taylor series | An example, which does not work for all browsers. |
Furman applets | Some simplistic but they work. |
Riemann sum applet | Rather limited. |
Differential equations | Cool laboratory, more than just a demo. |
Predator Pray | Allows to change parameters, Nice. |
Damped spring | Animation of damped spring. |
DField lab | An other popular lab (Dfield). |
Logistic equation | Numerical integration of logistic equation. |
