Powers of Ten 
View the Milky Way at 10 million light years from the Earth. Then move through space towards the Earth in successive orders of magnitude until you reach a tall oak tree just outside the buildings of the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory in Tallahassee, Florida. After that, begin to move from the actual size of a leaf into a microscopic world that reveals leaf cell walls, the cell nucleus, chromatin, DNA and finally, into the subatomic universe of electrons and protons. 

Vernier Calipers  A very nice applet showing how to measure distances using a Vernier Caliper.  
Radians  Learn about how a radian is defined and the radian value of common angles.  
Curve Fitting  Drag data points and their error bars and watch the bestfit polynomial curve update instantly. You choose the type of fit: linear, quadratic, or cubic. The reduced chisquare statistic shows you when the fit is good. Or you can try to find the best fit by manually adjusting fit parameters.  
Fourier: Making Waves  Learn how to make waves of all different shapes by adding up sines or cosines. Make waves in space and time and measure their wavelengths and periods. See how changing the amplitudes of different harmonics changes the waves. Compare different mathematical expressions for your waves.  
Plinko Probability  Drop balls through a triangular grid of pegs and see them accumulate in containers. Switch to a histogram view and compare the distribution of balls to an ideal binomial distribution. Adjust the binary probability and develop your knowledge of statistics!
