This applet teaches students in a very dramatic way how changing the "bin width" of a histogram can dramatically alter the shape of the histogram. Lesson: you should graph your data with a number of different bin widths and choose the one that you feel best represents the data.
Here are two versions of Completing the Square - a web page from NCTM and an ActivStudio flipchart.

Move the red dot on the parabola and the gradient function (a linear function) is graphed below it. Very neat. From Manipula Maths.
This applet also draws the graph of the 2nd derivative.
Move the red dot on the trig function and the graph of the gradient function is shown below. Very neat! From Manipula Maths.
This applet also shows the graph of the 2nd derivative.
A man is riding on the surf. We set f(x) as the curve of the wave . Observe the slope of the surfbord. The trace of the slope is the derivative of f(x). From Manipula Maths.

Some wonderful animations that show the sine, cosine and tangent of angles on the unit circle.
This is a neat look-see proof that the sum of the exterior angles of any polygon is 360 degrees.
Move the triangle by dragging the red point. What did you find?
