Close Packing of Layers of Spheres  William F. Coleman
An animation of the close packing of layers of spheres. In this version, clicking on text links adds the second and third layers, with two options for the third layer. After both ways of adding the third layer have been explored the user has an option to go to a second version that has no text but rather allows the user to drag the layers over one another.

Radius Ratio  William F. Coleman
This is a set of animations that demonstrates properties of the spherical holes formed when uniform spheres are packed. Cubic, octahedral and tetrahedral packing arrangements may be examined without anything in the holes,and with the repective holes filled. The sizes of the various holes relative to the spheres being packed are shown, which can lead students into an exploration of the radius ratio concept. An example is given of computing the relative size of an octahedral hole.
