This applet formed the basis for a class on February 22, 2010.

|In the spring of 2007, a collaboration with Dr. Peter Dourmashkin, Senior Lecturer in the MIT Physics Department, resulted in the creation of a new Mathlet, “Series RLC Circuits”. By April the applet was ready for use in the TEAL 8.02 classroom.
Dourmashkin found that his students, who used the applet, performed some five points better on the portion of the next hour exam which covered this topic. This photo is from a TEAL class in the spring of 2009.
