http://www.arcytech.org/java/ - The idea is to give the student
challenging and motivating problems and have him or her use
the tools provided in this site to explore new concepts,
discover new ideas, and improve the student's abilities to
solve problems. There is a nice section on the Pythagorean Theorem.

The Virtual Lab - http://ir.chem.cmu.edu/vlab/vlab.php - a collection of virtual labs, scenario-based learning activities, and concepts tests which can be incorporated into a variety of teaching approaches as pre-labs, alternatives to textbook homework, and in-class activities for individuals or teams.

Weather Maker - http://www.scholastic.com/kids/weather/sim/game.htm- Turn a sunny day into a windy day. Or create a rainy day. And if you create the correct conditions, you can make a blizzard - complete with a whiteout!

http://ugrad.math.ubc.ca/coursedoc/math101/ - Maintained by the University
of British Columbia as a supplement to their Math 101 course, this page
contains interactive tutorials and demonstrations on fundamental calculus topics,
including Area under a Curve and Average Value.

demonstrations and explorations of many fundamental Calculus concepts,
including limits, Linear Approximation and Riemann Sums.
Also contains information on how to write calculus programs for TI-83 calculator.

Demonstrations Project was conceived by Stephen Wolfram as an open-code resource
that uses dynamic computation to illuminate concepts in science, technology,
mathematics, art, finance, and a range of other fields.
