An important aspect of DEMOS with POSITIVE IMPACT is the
involvement of students.
We have been fortunate to have a talented group of students who have developed Java
applets to compliment a number of the demos. The applets along with their creators follow:
Constriction by Ge Yan, Yuchi Ting, & Zaid Muhammad (in the
Cross-sectional area of an artery is constricted by a percent of change.
Constriction by Ge Yan & Yuchi Ting (in the wordproblem demo)
Cross-sectional area of an artery is constricted by a fixed change.
Growth Simulation by Philip Nicastro and Michael Shelmut (in the
elementary probability demos)
A Monte Carlo simulation of bacteria distribution in an experiment.
by Ranchao Jin (in the wordproblem demo)
A square is cut from each corner of a square piece of material to form a box.
Crystal Growth by Ranchao Jin (in the wordproblem demo)
A cubic crystal grows at a fixed rate.
Chocolate Chip Simulation by Philip Nicastro and David Spearing (in
the elementary probability demos)
A fixed number of chocolate chips are to be randomly allocated to 100 cookies.
Distance from a point to a Curve by Ge Yan & Yuchi Ting (in the
Given a curve y = f(x) and a point (a,b) not on the curve, determine the point on the curve closest to (a,b).
Inequality DEMO by Philip Nicastro (in the inequality demo)
A tool for teaching about linear inequalities.
Inscribe a Rectangle in an Right Isosceles Triangle by Jun Park (in
the maxmin demo)
The user chooses the length of the legs of the triangle and tries to determine the rectangle of maximal
area that can be inscribed in the triangle.i
Simulation by Philip Nicastro (in the elementary probability demos)
A Monte Carlo simulation determine if pumping between two points is possible.
Pump Experiment Simulator by Philip Nicastro (in the elementary
A utility to perform a set of pump simulation experiments.
Rainbow Simulation by Saritha Somasundaram (in the elementary
A graphics display of a rainbow simulation.
Random Number Generator for the Logistics Demo by Saritha
Somasundaram (in the logistics demo)
This provides a browser based utility for the generation of the random choices in the demo.
Color Demo by Joshua Kraft (in RGB demo)
An interactive formation of a linear combination of primary colors.
Rowing & Walking by Jun Park (in maxmin demo)
Interactive routine to determine the minimum time to use a combination of rowing and
walking between two points.
All of the creators were students at Temple University.
