This is a lovely application that kept me playing for most of the morning. I had to force myself to stop, to write this post, and get on with real-world adult responsibilities. In a nutshell, it's an application that draws graphs with mathematics. Oh, but not just graphs - you can draw pictures, play with animations, and more. It's a fantastic way of showing how mathematics reflect, and describe, things in everyday life. There are numerous classroom activities to help teachers make the most of the tool to show students what they can do with it. I'm sure there's a business model in there somewhere (along the lins of fees for classroom use) but there's enough available for free that it's definitely worth a mention.
