Aplets are interactive lessons designed for HP calculators by educators and students. These interactive lessons have been developed for teachers and students to investigate, explore, and play with mathematical concepts.
The main purpose of an aplet is to promote student-centered learning through exploration and discovery. Aplets can be created for group discussions, cooperative group experiences, and individual investigation. Aplets are designed to control the parameters of the environment where the student is working or to ease the syntax and manipulation required by the calculator.
