The Biomedical
Visualization Lab

[http://www.bvis.uic.edu/student/]

"Biomedical
Visualization combines visual problem-solving skills with knowledge of science,
education, communication and an array of media and technologies. Working in a variety of
settings, graduates use their scientific and artistic expertise to visually communicate
information to other health professionals, patients, or the public."

Concepts in Science
through Molecular Modeling: Activities for Students and Teachers

[http://www.nyu.edu/pages/mathmol/modules/modules.html]

Several molecular
mathematical models designed for teachers and students that cover the properties of
water, the chemistry of carbon, photosynthesis, and molecules of life. Concepts in the
section on mathematics through molecular modeling include tutorials and suggestions for
educational uses of molecular models.

Downloadable Geometic Modeling
Software

[http://www.geom.umn.edu/software/download/]

"Part of the
mission of the Geometry Center is to develop software tools to support the computation
and visualization of mathematics. A considerable portion of the Center's efforts have gone
to designing such tools, and to making them available to the mathematical and scientific
communities, and to the world at large." Included at the site are a math equation renderer,
software to compute convex hulls, and a variety of Mathematica tools.

IPPC Atmosphere-Ocean Model
Simuluations

[http://www.giss.nasa.gov/cgi-bin/caom]

"The global coupled
Atmosphere-Ocean Model was designed for climate predictions at decade to century time
scales. The ocean model conserves mass, allows for divergent flow, and has a free upper
surface. Atmospheric and ocean surface fluxes are of opposite sign and are applied
synchronously. Flux corrections are not used."

visualization resources.

Scientific
Images and Animation

[http://www.tc.cornell.edu/Visualization/animations/animations.html]

The Cornell
Theory Center maintains an impressive list of visual images and annimations of a variety
of phenomona. These include a model of forest growth, molecules, body motion, and
tusnamis

Scientific
Visualizers

[http://covis.atmos.uiuc.edu/geosciences/visualization/visualizers.html]

The
Collaborative Visualization (CoVis) project maintains a variety of resources on scientific
visualization, including a weather visualizer, Greenhouse Effect visualizer, climate
visualizers, and oceanographic visualizers. This Website also has extensive support
materials on scientific visualization for teachers and students.

GenScope

[http://copernicus.bbn.com/genscope/index.html]

GenScope is a scientific modeling
tool that supports six levels of study: molecules, chromosomes, cells, organisms,
pedigrees, and populations. "GenScope introduces a new paradigm for educational
technology, a hypermodel, that uses the computer to bridge the gap between a model and
the physical world the model represents, between the 'facts and figures' offered us by the
natural world and the mental associations we construct to explain them."

Model-It

[http://hi-c.eecs.umich.edu/research/model_it.html]

"Model-It enables middle and high
school students to construct and test dynamic models of complex systems, such as stream
ecosystems. Our goal is for students to understand natural phenomena as dynamic systems
of objects and the relationships between them." (See also Vis-It a tool for data
visualization.)

SimCalc

[http://tango.mth.umassd.edu/]

Created by researchers at the University of Massachusetts, SimCalc is a mathematical
simulation tool for understanding calculus. "The SimCalc Project aims to democratize
access to the mathematics of change for mainstream students by combining advanced
simulation technology with innovative curricular solutions that begin in the early grades
and includes powerful ideas extending beyond classical calculus."

StarLogo

[http://www.umcs.maine.edu/~inquiry/starlogointro.html]

"Starlogo is a programming
language/modeling tool/microworld construction tool developed at the MIT Media Lab by
Mitchel Resnick, and is described in his book, 'Turtles, Termites, and Traffic Jams: An
Exploration in Massively Parallel Microworlds'."
