Students are invited to submit solutions to Elementary, Middle School, Geometry, Algebra, Discrete Math, and Trig/Calculus problems: http://mathforum.org/pow/ . CHAMELEON GRAPHING - Ursula Whitcher http://mathforum.org/cgraph/cplane/ A Web unit that introduces the coordinate plane, for late elementary and middle-school students. With the help of Sam the Chameleon, learn to find points on a number line and graph points in the coordinate plane. Contents include: - Introduction - Points on a Line Negative Numbers - The Plane Finding Points in the Plane Graphing Points in the Plane - Scale Estimating Points Tricky Graphs - Glossary - Links - Note to Grownups -|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|- FAMOUS CURVES APPLET INDEX MacTutor Math History Archive http://www-history.mcs.st-and.ac.uk/history/Java/ From Astroid, Cardiod, Catenary, and Cayley's Sextic to the Trisectrix of Maclaurin, Tschirnhaus' Cubic, Watt's Curve, the Witch of Agnesi - and many more - click on the name of a curve to experiment with some of its associated curves.
