Online labs

Preliminary and incomplete--comments welcome

Read this box first.

  • To follow the links below this box, you need a user name and password that I will provide in an upcoming lecture.
  • Both the interactive diagrams and the accompanying text in these labs are works in progress. In several cases, some steps are functional while others are not. I have noted briefly in the text windows some features that I know are misbehaving. You may find others, and I would be interested in your comments.
  • Be patient in loading the labs, especially over a slow modem connection. They include some sizable (300-400KB) files that can take a few minutes to load. (Like everything else on the web, they load more quickly in places like the campus computer labs, which have faster connections.)
  • If it is easy to accomplish on your computer without rebooting, you may want to change your display resolution to 800x600.
