RoachDissection.htm
RoachDissection.exe
RoachDissection.mov
A
humorous introduction to tdistributions in which roaches are fed
glucose and then dissected for sampling to see how quickly their metabolism
absorbs the sugar. Based on an example in "The Basic Practice
of Statistics" by Moore, page 413.

An animation shows
an example of sampling in selecting a jury, and the students are asked
to determine if the sample reflects the population.

An
animation showing that the mean of a distribution is the balance point
of its histogram.

9_Curves.ppt A
PowerPoint containing the nine curves from the J.J. Flash animations
below showing several normal curves with different means and standard
deviations. (used as a discussion aid after showing the "JJ_Flash"
animations below, where tiny cartoon characters ("Jumping Jack
Flash") modify a curve into each of the nine different curves.)

An
animation  two different 3sided scoops made from the same size flat
sheet of board dip into a pile of M&M candies. Which scoop holds
the most? The volume differs because the sides and bottoms are different
measurements.

FerrisWheelNoDots.htm
and FerrisWheelWithDots.htm A
pair of animations of the sideview of a double ferris wheel showing
the path taken by a passenger as he travels around the ferris wheel.
The first animation just shows the wheel turning, while the second
animation leaves "tracer" dots behind in the path of the
rider showing the path taken. This is used in conjunction with "Trig
in the Real World", and parametric equations. 
MonkeysPendulum.html
MonkeysPendulum.exe This animation provides a fun way to compare the arc of two pendulums, a pair of monkeys whose tails are of different lengths swing out to gather bananas. Students visualize the movement of a pendulum and the central angles arc length.

periodic phenomena of the rise and fall of two populations: hawks
and doves. 
BoxProblem.htm
or BoxProblem.exe
or BoxProblem.mov
An
animation showing three identical size sheets of cardboard folding
into three opentop boxes, each with different bottom and side dimensions.
This is used to show how the various size squares give different volumes
of space inside, although they are made from the same size of raw
material. Also there is an optimum volume which can be reached using
any one size of raw material (a Max/Min problem for Calculus or
below).

or BoxProblem_template.jpg
Two
still images used in conjunction with "Box Problem"
animation above. One has the formula and labels, and one is
blank so the instructor can use it in a powerpoint or other
application and add text labels and values as desired.
