A student can then use the spreadsheet or computer algebra system to analyze this output. This provides students with more power and creative control, and it helps them build general purpose skills. Through the Javascript and HTML forms interface, curriculum developers need no formal knowledge of Java to create their own interactive materials. The Lite Applet Collection is open source. All the files used in this article, including the Java source code files, are freely available. http://www.joma.org/vol2/articles/wattenberg/contents.html Submit your own lite applets and modules for consideration in this collection. \|/ LESSONS USING LITE APPLETS - Suzanne Alejandre http://mathforum.org/te/alejandre/ The lessons in this collection were written for a middle school or developmental mathematics level audience.
