Determine the value of two fractions you have chosen (which are represented as points on a number line). Then find a fraction whose value is between your two fractions and determine its value. This manipulative is the same as "Bounded Fraction Pointer" but there is no arrow to help the user determine the value of a fraction between the two endpoints. Bounded Fraction Finder is one of the Interactivate assessment explorers.

Determine the value of two fractions you have chosen (which are represented as points on a number line). Then find a fraction whose value is between your two fractions (using an arrow on the number line as a guide) and determine its value. Bounded Fraction Pointer is one of the Interactivate assessment explorers.

This activity allows the user to explore different cross sections of various cones, cylinders, prisms, and pyramids. Cross sections can be difficult for students to understand, given that the concept requires that students switch between three-dimensional shapes and two-dimensional representations of those shapes.

This applet is an expanded version of 3D Transmographer. This 3-dimensional model allows users to explore functions and their revolution around an axis. Once one or two functions have been rotated around an axis, the applet calculates the surface area and volume for the resulting solid. By clicking and dragging on the graph, users can change the vantage point from which they view the graph in order to better understand the functions, the revolution, and the resulting solid.

Mixtures allows the user to explore percent problems with two sets of circles. Each set of circles can have both colored and / or uncolored circles. The number of colored circles represents the percent of each pile. The user can select from a four modes: Exploration, Unknown Pile, Unknown Percent, or Unknown total.
