Goals of the Workshop:
 To show that technology, particularly applets on the Internet, can be used as a tool for teaching mathematics effectively.
 To provide links to applets already on the Web.
 To suggest resources to use in writing your own applets.
Introduction:
Java applets bring a unique opportunity to a classroom teacher with access to technology to engage students in mathematical thinking. Used in combination with manipulatives and paper/pencil activities the Internet and in particular Java applets, can provide the teacher with more opportunities to reach students.

Applets:
There are two ways to have applets to use with your students. One is to find them on the Web and the other is to make them yourself. The links to the right will provide some ideas for both methods.
