Statistics | |
Non-Applet Resources | Brain Teaser, Data Sets, Pictograph |
Bar Graph | Enter data to create a bar graph, then manipulate the graph's maximum and minimum values. |
Stem and Leaf | Displays stem-and-leaf plots of data. Allows students to practice finding means, medians, and modes. |
Spinner | Students can create a game spinner with 1 to 12 sectors of equal size to discover experimental and theoretical probabilities. |
Fractals | |
Non-Applet Resources | Worksheets and Handouts |
Tortoise and Hare | Students step through the tortoise and hare race, based on Zeno's paradox, to learn about the multiplication of fractions and about convergence of an infinite sequence of numbers. |
Hilbert Curve Generator | Students step through the generation of a Hilbert Curve -- a fractal made from deforming a line by bending it, allowing them to explore number patterns in sequences and geometric properties of fractals. |
Another Hilbert Curve Generator | Students step through the generation of a different Hilber-like Curve -- a fractal made from deforming a line by bending it, allowing them to explore number patterns in sequences and geometric properties of fractals. |
Koch's Snowflake | Students step through the generation of the Kock Snowflake -- a fractal made from deforming the sides of a triangle, allowing them to explore number patterns in sequences and geometric properties of fractals. |
Sierpinski's Triangle | Students step through the generation of Sierpinski's Triangle -- a fractal made from subdividing a triangle into four smaller triangles and cutting the middle one out, allowing them to explore number patterns in sequences and geometric properties of fractals. |
Sierpinski's Carpet | Students step through the generation of Sierpinski's Carpet -- a fractal made from subdividing a square into nine smaller squares and cutting the middle one out, allowing them to explore number patterns in sequences and geometric properties of fractals. |
