Mathematical induction is an important concept that many students have difficulty understanding. This project attempts to improve comprehension of induction by using animations of induction presented through the World Wide Web to supplement course curriculum. An interface was created to present such material over the Web without requiring students to obtain special software for viewing. Learning styles of the students are also considered, although little correlation can be made between efficacy of the animations and any particular learning style.
