              LITE APPLETS - August 2002 JOMA Article
        Frank Wattenberg, Bart Stewart, Suzanne Alejandre

  http://www.joma.org/vol2/articles/wattenberg/JOMA_article/wattenberg1.html

  Lite applets produce output that is easily cut-and-pasted
  into a spreadsheet or a computer algebra system.

  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.

  Submit your own lite applets and modules for consideration
  in this collection.
