This resource is a set of free interactive Java-based courseware for science and mathematics structured around collections of activities, lessons, and discussions. The interactive tools, the central piece of the courseware, are organized by topic and aligned to several well-known textbooks in STEM education. Learners will find 100+ interactive activities covering Numbers, Geometry, Algebra, Probability, Statistics, Modeling, and more. Educators may freely download accompanying standards-based lessons organized by grade band.

Editor's Note: CSERD, the Computational Science Education Reference Desk, is a Pathways portal of the National Science Digital Library. CSERD activities are frequently tested in the classroom setting in an effort to provide optimal experiences for learners.

Please note that this resource requires Java Applet Plug-in.
