The Geometer's Sketchpad - Least Squares
This site provides a java-based demonstration of how a least-squares analysis works. The applet opens with a set of data points with a superimposed line. By clicking and dragging, the user can move the data points and change the slope and/or the y-intercept of the line. The residual error for each data point is shown as a square whose area increases the greater the vertical distance between the point and the line. A total sum-of-squares also is shown. By adjusting the slope and y-intercept, the
Cooperative Learning, Values, and Culturally Plural Classrooms
This webpage provides an introduction to cooperative learning by David and Roger Johnson who developed the technique. The article provides an overview of the cooperative learning method, discusses its educational benefits, and provides assessment data for its efficacy. The article also provides archival references to their work and others. As such the article is an invaluable resource for faculty interested in developing and implementing cooperative learning activities in their own classrooms

Java Demography, an application that simulates exponential growth in age-structured populations, enables users to manipulate values for age-specific mortality rates, fertility rates, and initial population characteristics. Through observation of how population characteristics change through time, users of Java Demography can investigate important questions in population biology, develop a deeper understanding of fundamental population concepts, and explore issues related to population policy.
