Interactive Math Applications

This is a summary of the various interactive graphs, calculators and other manipulatives here on IntMath. If you use the Interactive Whiteboard in your math class, this is an ideal place to start!

Most of these interactive applets work on mobile devices, but not all (Flash-based applets do not work on mobile devices).

The order of the topics is similar to the order followed by IntMath.

The various manipulatives that are linked on this page were created using javascript, JSXGraph, and ASCIIsvg. You can read more about these at the bottom of the page.

Calculators

Number, Ratio and Exponential Growth

Matrices

Software Used to Create the Interactives

1. JSXGraph Interactive Graphs

JSXGraph is a great way to interact with math concepts. You can view the graphs and interact with them on most computing devices. JSXGraph does not produce image files as it is based on javascript. Compatability:

  • Works on Windows, Mac and Linux
  • Works in all browsers (Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Opera and IE)
  • Works on most mobile devices (iPhone, iPad, Android - but not in Opera Mini)

2. SVG Graphs

SVG stands for "Scalable Vector Graphics" and is the favorite format for graphic artists. You can see graphs on a Web page without using image files, similar to JSXGraph.

Compatability:

  • Works on Windows, Mac, Linux
  • Works natively on Chrome, Firefox, Safari and now IE
  • Works on mobile devices

3. Flash

Flash was a versatile development platform that was available on most platforms. But since it is a proprietry system (owned by Adobe) and is a power drain on mobile devices, most smartphones and tablets do not support Flash applets. I no longer develop for Flash, and have converted most math interactives to javascript-based ones.
