Interactive math tutorials, often called mathlets, are designed to provide a more visceral learning experience than traditional textbook methods and to enhance intuitive understanding of complex ideas by allowing users to alter parameters that influence visual scenes. We describe methods for creating such tutorials using the HTML5
canvaselement. First, we discuss some motivations for writing such mathlets, then walk-through the process of creating a mathlet with
canvas. Then, we compare
canvasto alternatives, explaining our decision to use it, and provide links to other demonstrations and resources.
