This web site provides PADs (interactive Java applets) that provide many ways to represent data and evaluate the accuracy of them. These applets allow users to create vectors, graphs, and diagrams and analyze videos and animations. Automated evaluation of diagrams created by students allow these applets to be used as tutorials or in online homework. A help section for students, instructors, and developers is also featured. Multi-lingual support is available.
