This activity and Java applet allows a student to explore modular arithmetic. It is also a tool for finding remainders where all the possible numbers (the numbers less than the divisor) are put in a circle or clock. The learner uses the scroll bar to modify the size of the clock from 2 to 26 hours, sets a starting value and then moves the "clock" forward a number of specified hours to see the resulting sum. Support pages for the learner and the instructor are included.
