This site has has interactive explanations and simulations of math from alegrbra to trigonometry. Just click the "interactive" tab on the top left menu and you can choose different simulations. It includes, the complete definition of parabolas, reaching beyond the ability to graph into the realm of why the graph appears as it does. It also has vivid descriptions of angles including circle angles for geometry. It also has calculators for principal nth roots, gdc, matrices, and prime factorization. It's definitely worth checking out. Quote from site: "A parabola is actually a locus of a point and a line. The point is called the focus and the line the directrix. That means that all points on a parabola are equidistant from the focus and the directrix. To change the equation and the graph of the interactive parabola below just click and drag either the point A, which is the focus, or point B, which controls the directrix." This is an interactive site that allows people to change the graph to understand why directrix and focus dictate parabolic graphs. Graphical representation of complex eigenvectors

The Graphical representation of complex eigenvectors simulation aims to help students make connections between graphical and mathematical representations of complex eigenvectors and eigenvalues. The simulation depicts two components of a complex vector in the complex plane, and the same vector under several transformations that can be chosen by the user. A slider allows students to change the second component of the initial vector. The simulation shows whether or not the vector is an eigenvector, and if so displays the associated eigenvalue. The simulation includes a small challenge in asking the student to find the elements of one of the transformation matrices. An accompanying activity for this simulation is available at http://quantumphysics.iop.org and at www.st-andrews.ac.uk/physics/quvis. The simulation can be downloaded from the QuVis website www.st-andrews.ac.uk/physics/quvis.This simulation is part of the UK Institute of Physics New Quantum Curriculum, see http://quantumphysics.iop.org. Simulations and accompanying activities can be accessed from the IOP site and from www.st-andrews.ac.uk/physics/quvis.

The Graphical representation of eigenvectors simulation aims to help students make connections between graphical and mathematical representations of eigenvectors and eigenvalues. The simulation depicts the two components of a unit vector in the xy-plane, and the same vector under several different transformations that can be chosen by the user. A slider allows students to change the orientation of the initial vector. The simulation shows whether or not the vector is an eigenvector, and if so displays the associated eigenvalue. The simulation includes a small challenge in asking students to find the elements of one of the transformation matrices 4.
