I got my first real taste of coding for interaction, and object-oriented programming, by playing with Flash and ActionScript 3. It was a lot of fun, and I loved working with Flash, but it is now a dying technology. I posted a lot of my work at a site called flashandmath.com, which is no longer active. Below are just a few remnants of that work, plus a few experiments that were never posted elsewhere. Some of the applets are here for nostalgia, and others because I have heard that teachers are still using them!

Mathematics

- Mandelbrot-Julia Plot Here is a mostly complete version of an applet which plots two-dimensional square planar slices of the four-dimensional Mandelbrot-Julia set. Documentation for the applet is here.
- Fractal Maker This is an applet which creates L-system fractals.
- Turtle Tracks In this applet, a two dimensional parametric curve is plotted according to your hand-drawn parametric coordinate functions.
- Derivative Draw Try to sketch the derivative of the drawn function.
- Integral Sketch Draw your own function, and this applet will show you an antiderivative function.
- Average Value Draw your own function, and this applet will show you the average value of that function from point A to point B, which are moveable points.
- Row Reducer This applet allows you to perform row reduction on a matrix. It will not automatically do the reduction for you - you must tell it which elementary row operations to use. The applet allows for either decimal or fractional numbers.
