Interactive math demonstrations from Wolfram

The following is one of literally thousands of interactive demonstrations in the Wolfram Demonstrations web site. You will need the free CDF player to run the demonstration. A small collection of these can be posted on a class web site for students to explore and then answer questions interactively, perhaps using Google forms, or as a hand-in assignment. Formulating good questions to go along with these demonstartions is a necessity if students are to comprehend the concepts. Otherwise, it may just seem to them like a dumbed down video game!
