Welcome to the first incarnation of the Lecture Demonstration web page. This is a work in progress for the forseeable future, so please feel free to offer suggestions for additions and/or improvements. You can navigate throughout these pages by clicking on a subject heading in the Table of Contents, you can return to the Table of Contents by clicking on the 'TOC'. At present, you will see a combination of mere demonstration titles and titles that link to full descriptions and instructions, some titles appear under more than one heading. The titles will gradually all be converted to links to pages of descriptions and instructions. If you don't see your favorite demonstrations, never fear, they aren't gone or unavailable they may simply not have been added to the list yet. Feel free to ask for anything whether its on the list or not.

There is an email link for questions, suggestions or demonstration requests at the bottom of this page and all of the linked pages.
