TITLE  RESOURCE TYPE  DISCIPLINE  SOURCE 
Cracking Kepler's spherepacking problem 
(PreKK  Continuing Education) Reference  Article/Document (12  College Senior) 
Computer Science  
The familiar piles of neatly stacked oranges at a supermarket represent a practical solution to the problem of packing spheres as tightly as possible. Now, a mathematician has proved that no other arrangement of identical spheres

BiConvex Lenses 
Teaching  Tutorial (PreKK  Continuing Education) 

This tutorial explores magnification by a simple biconvex lens. It shows an object an its projected image through a biconvex lens. It also explains how the distance of the image is calculated using the lens equation.
... more


The Variable Lens 
Teaching  Simulation (PreKK  Continuing Education) 

This tutorial explores the effect of lens shape on the interaction of a lens with light. Each side of the "window" is adjustable to produce a concave or convex surface. This applet also considers refraction, convergence, and dive
... more


Refractive Index Effects on Convex Lenses 
Teaching  Simulation (PreKK  Continuing Education) 

This tutorial examines how variations in the refractive index of both lens materials and imaging media affect the focal point of a biconvex lens. The user can also vary the lens index and the medium index.

Lens Shape: Effect on Lens Action Flash Tutorial 
Teaching  Simulation (PreKK  Continuing Education) 

This tutorial explores the effect of lens shape on the interaction of a lens with light. Each side of the "window" is adjustable to produce a concave or convex surface. This demonstration also considers refraction, convergence, a
... more


Thin Lens (Physics) 
Teaching  Simulation (PreKK  Continuing Education) 

This site demonstrates the optics of converging/diverging lenses and concave/convex mirrors. The user is allowed to move the object around, move the lens/mirror around, change the object's height, change the type of lens/mirror,
... more


Plano Convex Lenses (Object Facing Flat Surface) 
Teaching  Tutorial (PreKK  Continuing Education) 

This tutorial explores magnification by a simple planoconvex lens when the object faces the flat surface of the lens. The user can vary the position of the object. A brief explanation showing how the image distance is calculate
