Virtual Manipulatives for Math and Science

Manipulatives allow students to change variables and have a variety of results.
The two premier sites for virtual manipulatives are

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.
