PLAY Equations allows the student to explore graphiing of equations containing up to four variables: P,L,A, Y.
The Excel program uses the same powerful graphing techniques used by PK Tutor.
PLAY Equations is intended to help pre-algebra grade school and post-trig high school students understand plotting of self-defined equations. Each of the four possible variables has an associated slider bar that allows the student to see the impact of that variable's value on the overall graph. It is fun, informative, and most parents will want a copy too. Use it to explore, to play, or for real. Just substitute P,L,A,Y for variables in real equations. Type the equations using standard Excel methods.
This is a free preview offer of the fully functional PLAY Equations program made available to our SummitPK.com visitors for a limited time. Download one for your favorite student. And one for yourself.
PLAY Equations can be downloaded as an Excel spreadsheet suitable for use in Excel 95 thru 2003. Macintosh users can open the PC workbook and then save it as a Macintosh file.

DoseCalc is a handy tool for anyone working with radiolabeled materials. One of the first steps in planning a study using a radiolabeled dose material is to determine the required amount of dose and the total radioactivity needed. DoseCalc is an Excel tool that quickly computes these initial material requirements.
In the screen capture illustration of DoseCalc, cells with red text indicate user inputs and cells with black text are formula-based results. In practice, the dose amount is usually set by some criteria such as the intended dose level or an estimated toxicity. The total dose material is then quickly calculated by multiplying the number of doses by the dose amount. For radiolabeled studies, the total amount of radioactivity needed depends on the specific activity of the labeled dose material. Based on user inputs of desired sensitivity and sample size, DoseCalc determines the analytical sensitivity, the specific activity and the total radioactivity needed. Results can be adjusted interactively as well as tabulated for different dose groups.
DoseCalc can be downloaded as an Excel 7.0 (Windows) or Excel 5.0 (Mac) spreadsheet file. The program will work in any Windows PC or Macintosh running Excel version 5.0 or later.
