ESCOT Problems of the Week:
Archived Applets

ESCOT: www.escot.org || NCTM Standards-Aligned Index || Teacher Support || Student Versions

The applets listed below were made as part of ESCOT (Educational Software Components of Tomorrow) Problems of the Week from 1999 through 2001. Teachers may wish to use these to:

  • provide students time to interact with the applets (exploration)
  • use problems - Student Versions
Other resources for teachers include:

The technical requirements for ESCOT are here, however, every ESCOT PoW does some self-diagnostics to determine if any software installation is necessary.

More information is available on the ESCOT site's Interactive Problems page.

If you have something to share with us as you use any of the links or suggestions on this page (something you tried and changed or a new idea) we would love to hear from you. Please email us.
