Vector Fields Simulation
This applet demonstrates various properties of vector fields. You can select from a number of vector fields and see how particles move in the field if it is treated as either a velocity or a force field. This helps you visualize the field. Also you can see the values of the divergence and curl of the field. [From Author's Description]

This is a very visually simulating site. I highly recommend it as an effective learning module. it will enhance understanding of complex mathematical concepts especially for those visually creative individuals.
The applet is easy to navigate. It has well organized links and subject topics. It is simple but effective.
Time spent reviewing site: It took me 15 minutes toscroll dowm the various menu and view the visuals and topics.
