Learning Modules


Welcome to Callysto! Below are modules (also referred to as ‘notebooks’) for you to try out. These modules demonstrate:

  • how easy Callysto is to use
  • the ways in which Callysto can enhance existing curricula
  • the multitude of computing capabilities the learning platform has to offer.

To begin:

  1. Click on your preferred module (there may be a short delay, depending on other site activity)*
  2. Once in the module/notebook, click on “Cell” and then “Run All”
  3. Make changes to the text by double-clicking on a specific cell, and when finished, click “Run”.
  4. Play, experiment and have fun tinkering!

*Notebooks may take a minute to load.

Featured Modules

Science 9: Incorporating Live Water Treatment Readings

In this lab experiment, students are asked to measure and record the conductivity of different solutions, and are able to compare their results with live readings from the local water treatment plant.

English Language Arts 10-12: Shakespeare and Statistics

In this notebook, students will import the classic Shakespearean texts MacBeth and Hamlet, and perform a statistical analysis of proper nouns in each.

Math 7-11: Flipping (Unlimited) Coins to Show Number Probabilities

A classic statistics experiment is simply counting how many “heads” and “tails” students observe when flipping a coin repeatedly. This notebook allows them to flip an infinite number of coins.
