AMSER (the Applied Math and Science Education Repository) provides educational resources and services built specifically for use by those in Community and Technical Colleges but free for anyone to use.en-usealmasy@scout.wisc.eduealmasy@scout.wisc.eduSun, 20 Apr 2014 00:00:00 -0500Thu, 17 Apr 2014 00:00:00 -0500http://www.rssboard.org/rss-2-0-1Graffiti Grapher
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=16344
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=16344The Center for Cultural Design presents this site on graffiti artwork as it relates to mathematics. Graffiti artists often use geometric concepts when creating their work. The site includes interactive software that allows students to create their own graffiti while illustrating geometric patterns.Wed, 22 Dec 2010 03:00:01 -0600Radioactive Wastes
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=13766
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=13766Created by Lang Moore and David Smith for the Connected Curriculum Project, the purposes of this module are to develop multiple representations for decay of radioactive substances, in the context of environmental policies on a university campus, and to determine storage times for wastes to decay to safe levels for disposal. This is one lesson within a larger set of learning modules hosted by Duke University.Tue, 6 Jul 2010 03:00:01 -0500Radioactive Decay
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=13765
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=13765Created by William Barker and David Smith for the Connected Curriculum Project, the purposes of this module are to develop a mathematical model for decay of radioactive substances, and to develop a technique for deciding whether quantitative data fits the model or not. This is one lesson within a larger set of learning modules hosted by Duke University.Mon, 5 Jul 2010 03:00:02 -0500Functions Defined by Data
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=13764
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=13764Created by Lawrence Moore and David Smith for the Connected Curriculum Project, the purpose of this module is to carry out an exploration of functions defined by data; to learn about data entry and plotting operations. This is one lesson in a much larger set of learning modules hosted by Duke University.Tue, 4 May 2010 03:00:04 -0500Excel: Converting Radians to Degrees
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=12302
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=12302In this animated and interactive object, students read how to use the DEGREES() function to convert radians to degrees. Target Audience: 2-4 Year College StudentsWed, 14 Oct 2009 03:00:02 -0500Computational Geometry Pages
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=5456
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=5456A comprehensive directory of computational geometry resources both on and off the Internet. General Resources, Literature, Research and Teaching, Events, Software, other links.

https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=5440
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=5440Combinatorial objects are everywhere. How many ways are there to make change for $1 using unlimited numbers of coins of all denominations? Each way is a combinatorial object. AMOF is part encyclopedia and part calculator, a teaching tool that generates mathematical permutations for such combinatorial objects as subsets and combinations, partitions, magic squares, and Fibonacci sequences by allowing the user to define the parameters of discrete objects. The Object Factory returns a list of all objects that satisfy those parameters. The site can be used to learn more about many types of discrete mathematical structures; descriptions of objects progress in complexity for students at different levels. For more advanced materials, see the Combinatorial Object Server (COS).Tue, 25 Dec 2007 03:00:01 -0600Geometry (MathPages)
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=5464
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=5464"Informal notes" by Kevin Brown on geometry: constructing the heptadecagon, what mirrors do, the golden pentagon, the grazing goat and the lune, Napoleon's theorem, chess boards, Diophantine geodesic boxes, Zeno's mice and the logarithmic spiral, and many more.Tue, 11 Dec 2007 03:00:02 -0600Maths Online Gallery
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=4973
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=4973Provided by the University of Vienna’s futureMedia initiative, the Maths Online Gallery consists of a large collection of extremely useful interactive learning units that demonstrate mathematical concepts. A large number of interactive modules exist in such areas as analytic geometry, trigonometric functions, probability and statistics, integration, Fourier series, as well as model-building and simulation. The gallery was started in 1998 and new learning units are being continually added. This is an especially good resource for college and university teachers looking for in-class interactive illustrations of a large array of basic and advanced mathematical concepts.Wed, 14 Nov 2007 03:00:01 -0600Projective Geometry
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=4122
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=4122This site departs from the common themes taught in general geometry classes and introduces projective geometry, which has to do with special properties resulting from the intersection of lines, planes, and points. The coincidence of such elements is what is referred to as an incidence, and this is the basis of the topic. The site makes extensive use of animated figures to demonstrate principles involved in projective geometry, such as path curves, pivot transforms, and the curious concept of counter space. The author does a good job of explaining what is depicted in the figures as well as the underlying theory.Fri, 20 Jul 2007 03:00:02 -0500
