    My only source to the web is through my android 2.2.2 phone. I am having difficulties running the mathlets. Do you have suggestion as to how I might be able to use the mathlets.

    We are translating the MIT Mathlets into Javascript. This should run on your Android. Target date Dec 31 2013.

    We try to populate the menus with the most pedagogically useful examples. Would |x| be useful to you?
