Interactive Library -- Java Applets
The Interactive Library is
about "real interactivity"! The database
contains hundreds of activities that make use
of sophisticated java, vrml and shockwave prgrams.
If you are unfamiliar with java or shockwave
take a look at these sample programs.
Create your own activity sheet to go with the programs
and your students are set for a new experience.
Use these programs to supplement your classroom activities,
or use one of the more advanced applets as a starting
point for your science project.
Use these programs to supplement your childs homework.

Time and Car Accident
There are 10 cars in a row, all moving in the the same direction
with the same speed. You are the driver of the second car. Enter different speeds
and friction coefficients and see what your reaction time is...
