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!
