Ihor
I use the math ones all the time. My personal favorite is the Distance Time
graph:

I like adding points and then having the students watch what the runner does as
you change the graph. It's great for Algebra I and explaining rate of change
and y intercepts! I am still looking for folks who might have used the science
applets in math class.
