Distance between points
An interactive applet and associated web page that demonstrate how to find the distance between two points with given coordinates. The applet has two points on a Cartesian plane. As the user drags either point it continuously recalculates the distance between them. The distance is shown both on the plane and as a continuously changing formula. The grid, axis pointers and coordinates can be turned on and off. The distance calculation can be turned off to permit class exercises and then turned bac

Distance from a point to a vertical or horizontal line
An interactive applet and associated web page that demonstrate how to find the perpendicular distance between a point and a line that is either vertical or horizontal, given the coordinates of the point and the equation of the line. The user can set the orientation of the line and position, along with the location of the point. As the line is altered or the point dragged, the distance is recalculated. The grid and coordinates can be turned on and off. The distance calculation can be turned off t

Distance from a point to a line using trigonometry
An interactive applet and associated web page that demonstrate how to find the perpendicular distance between a point and a line using trigonometry, given the coordinates of the point and the slope/intercept of the line. The applet has a line with sliders that adjust its slope and intercept, and a draggable point. As the line is altered or the point dragged, the distance is recalculated. The grid and coordinates can be turned on and off. The distance calculation can be turned off to permit class

Learning Objects
A learning object is best described as a representation designed to be reused in different educational contexts. In this page you will references to my papers and examples of various learning objects develop either by my self or by my students. Learning objects might reside in digital repositories, ready to be located and utilized by those involved in educational activities (e.g., teachers and students). They address: (a) key concepts from disciplines, in visual and often interactive ways not pe
