Embedded Math Applets

As a teacher, you can use the wiki to embed Java Applets that illustrate a particular math concept. You could also ask students to find this content for the wiki pages that they create. Here is an example of a Java Applet that illustrates the Sieve of Eratosthenes. What is going on in the graphic below? How does it work?

To embed this applet, I chose, in the Editor Toolbar, the "picture frame option labeled "Insert Images and Files". I chose the External Images tab, copied the link to the applet, and pressed load, then double-click the file to insert it onto the page.
