The Mathematical Association of America (MAA) has developed a vast set of educational materials for mathematics teachers, and many of them can be found on their well-thought out website. This particular resource is an article by Jonathan Rogness and Martin Kraus, and the piece offers an explanation of how to use a Java applet called LiveGraphics3D to speed up the process of creating interactive graphics. Visitors can use this piece to learn how to accurately describe and create animations that illustrate various mathematical principles and objects. The piece is divided into eighteen short sections, including "Moving Lines and Polygons", "Advanced Examples", "Future Directions", and "Occlusions of Objects". It's a fine resource overall, and it will probably inspire interested parties to explore the other articles archived here.
