Central Limits Theorem   (details) 38 ENG   41KB/2KB
One of the most fundamental theorems in the study of statistical inference is the Central Limits Theorem. This states basically that the means of successive random samples taken from a population will be normally distributed whatever the underlying parent distribution. This aplet illustrates this and that the standard deviations are related by ratio. Sampling can be done from different parent distributions and the resulting collection of means compared to the equivalent Normal distribution. It is fairly slow to execute because of the need for repeated sampling but would be quite useful to teachers.

Surd Simplifier   (details) 38 ENG   2KB/1KB
This is a small but very handy program written by a student who obviously has some interesting ideas. If you enter a surd or an expression involving surds it will return the simplified version.

The First 50   (details) 38 ENG   86KB/1+KB
ScreenshotThis is a collection of small programs you can type in yourself or download. They perform a multitude of small tasks, some that are so easy you'll wonder why I wrote a program for them, some that are really cool. Separated into two parts, because there are too many programs to fit all in the 38's memory at once. Mostly math programs, for numeric, trigonometric, complex, linear, and cubic calculations, plus probability, matrix, finance, statistics, and more.

Time Series   (details) 38 ENG   22KB/3KB
ScreenshotSchool activity designed to easily and quickly analyze Time Series style data, by calculating moving averages (3, 4 & 5 point), seasonal residuals, trend lines and seasonally adjusted data. It more a working tool, rather than an investigative tool.

Transformer   (details) 38 ENG   18KB/2KB
ScreenshotThis is an easy adaption of the Parametric aplet which allows the student to investigate geometric transformations using 2x2 matrices. It is a fantastic teaching tool - my class deduced all the basic 2x2 transformation matrices for themselves in less than an hour.

Trig Explorer   (details) 38 ENG   23KB/7KB
ScreenshotVery well written HP 38G Aplet. This allows students to investigate the behavior of the graph of y=a sin(bx+c)+d as the values of a, b, c and d change. This can be done both by manipulating the equation and seeing the change in the graph, and by manipulating the graph and seeing the change in the equation.

Vecteur   (details) 38 FRA   1KB/2KB
Vector calculation program.
By Andréas Thillosen. 1998/08/26

Vector Derivatives   (details) 38 ENG   15KB/2KB
ScreenshotSchool activity designed to investigate the relationship between the position, velocity and acceleration vectors for functions defined in the form (x(t),y(t)).

VOL/SA1   (details) 38 ENG   13KB/2KB
Calculate volumes and surface areas for the three dimensional shapes of the pyramid and the cone.
By Hewlett-Packard. 1998/06/22

VOL/SA2   (details) 38 ENG   17KB/2KB
Calculate volumes and surface areas for three dimensional shapes of the box and the cylinder.
By Hewlett-Packard. 1998/06/22

WindFix   (details) 38 ENG   1KB/2KB
Adjusts axes to nice values so cross-hair 'jumps' are to useful points rather than horrible decimals. Trig gives \pi fractions. Similar to Function Plus, but a program instead of an aplet, requiring less memory.
