My First Web Page: Lesson 7: Interacting with Third Party Apps

Create Your Own Live Mathematics and STEM Web Pages

W3Schools.com: Learn JavaScript

  

 

  
  

We have seen the ways in which GeoGebra can be readily customised to interact with web page content using JavaScript, but this is just the beginning!

There are a multitude of JavaScript and HTML5 applets freely available for almost any application that you could think of - just visit github.com and search under JavaScript.

One of the first implementations of Bluetooth for common use was in personal heart rate monitors. This presents a lovely opportunity to personalise student learning about important mathematical and STEM skills and concepts - as well as a great introduction to BLE JavaScript coding.

The BLE heart rate script transmits a value using the Bluetooth SIG Heart Rate Profile and should work with most common heart rate monitors.

Another example which I recently discovered came from a very prolific creator of amazing interactive web tools in Mike Bostock - take a few minutes to scroll through the many wonderful web tools which he has developed or inspired - from graphs of every kind to artwork to a particular favourite of mine - music!

Many years ago, I undertook research on the role of the harmonic mean, which led to some lovely discoveries which I drew together as Mathematics: A Search for Harmony. Growing from this was my interest in providing tools for students explore the mathematics of music and harmony, and consequently the idea of linking a web-based keyboard with GeoGebra arose naturally.

While you will find quite a few browser-based piano applets around, most of them, I found, worked fine on the computer but not on tablets, which was disappointing. And then I found Mike Bostock's awesome Arc Piano - and even a Circle Piano (see below)!
