This is a QR code. A QR Code is a 2-dimensional barcode, which has encoded in it a URL (web address), text, or other information. It can be read by a QR code scanner, including QR scanner smartphone apps. Once you have an app installed on your smartphone, open the app and hold your phone’s camera over a QR code to read it. Most QR codes you’ll come across have a URL encoded, so chances are when you read the QR code it will take you to a web page.

Great for visualizing travelling wave functions! Eric Harpell has written a paper describing his use of this applet in his classroom.

Excellent pedagogical tool! One of the best aspects of this applet is the ""examples"" section, which has problems of varying difficulty to solve. The last one is really challenging!
