 Ballot Experiment
This resource consists of a Java applet and expository text. The applet is a simulation of the ballot experiment: The votes in an election are randomly counted. The event of interest is that the winning candidate is always ahead in the vote count.

Buffon's Needle Experiment
This resource consists of a Java applet and expository text. The applet simulates Buffon's needle experiment and the corresponding approximation of pi. The event of interest is that the needle crosses a crack. The length of the needle can be varied. The applet illustrates a random experiment, the sample space, random variables, probability, and relative frequency.

Accuracy of Series Approximations
In physics and mathematics, series expansions to approximate functions are often used because using the exact solution is either impossible or involves unnecessary complicated calculations. This Demonstration shows accuracy for a series of expansions and how adding terms increases that accuracy moving away from the origin.

Big Picture of Calculus
Calculus is about change. One function tells how quickly another function is changing. Professor Strang shows how calculus applies to ordinary life situations, such as: * driving a car * climbing a mountain * growing to full adult height View the complete course at: http://ocw.mit.edu/highlights-of-calculus License: Creative Commons BY-NC-SA More information at http://ocw.mit.edu/terms More courses at http://ocw.mit.edu

EngMath: Intro to Laplace Transform. Chris Tisdell UNSW Sydney
This video is a simple introduction to the Laplace transform. The transform is defined and some simple examples are presented. Such ideas are seen in 2nd year university studies. Laplace transforms find uses in solving initial value problems that involve linear, ordinary differential equations with constant coefficients. These types of problems usually arise in modelling of phenomena. Laplace transforms offer an advantage over other solution methods to initial value problems as they streaml

EngMath: Intro to Fourier series. Chris Tisdell UNSW Sydney
This video is a basic to introduction Fourier series. I define a Fourier series and show how to calculate them. Fourier series are used in solving differential equations that arise in the study of heat flow and vibrations. Fourier series provide a means of approximating discontinuous periodic functions over intervals (rather than just near certain points).
