  1. Vector projections

    This applet aims to demonstrate visually the projection of a vector u onto a vector v.

  2. Central Limit Theorem and Law of Large Numbers

    This applet illustrates how the distribution of the sample mean converges towards normality as sample size increases.

  3. Population genetics by FHW model

    This applet calculates the zygote and adult allele and genotype frequencies according to the Fisher-Haldane-Wright model of population genetics, and plots the results.

  4. Iterating a difference equation

    This applet iterates a difference equation (also known as recurrence relation) and displays the resulting sequence both graphically and numerically.

  5. Cobwebbing a difference equation

    This worksheet performs iteration and produces cobweb diagrams for a first-order difference equation (AKA recurrence relation, discrete dynamical system).

  6. Cobwebbing, linear approximation and stability

    This applet shows a linear approximation to a non-linear difference equation close to an equilibrium, using cobwebbing. It can be used to investigate the accuracy of a linear approximation, or to motivate the linear stability criterion for equilibria of a first-order difference equation.

  7. Guess the correlation

    Guess the correlation of a sample of bivariate data drawn from a linear or non-linear population.

  8. Sampling from a bivariate population

    Repeatedly sample from a bivariate population, and construct a histogram of sample regression line slope.

  9. Solution of the wave equation

    This applet illustrates a solution of the wave equation, from the MAST20029 Engineering Mathematics lecture notes.

  10. Exploring an ODE with Euler method

    This applet displays the direction field and solutions for an ordinary differential equation (ODE), and calculates approximate solutions using Euler’s method.
