  • Simulations & Visualizations

Building on simulations used at MIT, Professor Haynes Miller created the Interactive Mathematics Project, which encouraged and enabled MIT students to make observations and measurements with “mathlets.” These highly interactive Javascript applets, runnable under any browser, were designed to illustrate mathematical concepts. Students can use these apps to visualize how changing variables affect systems. Learn more about mathlets.
