Gallery of 2008 Workshop Participant Work

Here are some of the applets develop by participants during the week of this workshop. Note that some of these applets are still "in progress." More polished versions may be submitted to MathDL in the future. Click on any screen shot to open the sample in a new window so you can see how it works. ALL FLASH MATHLETS ON THIS PAGE REQUIRE THE FREE ADOBE FLASH 9 PLAYER.
