## Canvas Clock

So much is possible with HTML graphics that it is hard to know where to start.

Rather than try to cover introductory ground that is much better done elsewhere, here we just see some examples of what can be achieved relatively simply, and leave you to spend the time you need at the relevant web sites. Study the JavaScript code for each example and feel free to adapt it for your own pages.

## Solar Animation with Images

Mozilla.org is another excellent source for HTML and JavaScript tutorials.

## Function Grapher with Sliders

This one has been adapted from the source, adding the ability to enter your own functions and the wonderful MathJax to display the mathematics correctly, where possible. Sliders have been added to bring this simple plotter to life!

v = 0

h = 0

## Irrational SpiderWeb

Can you imagine Pythagoras dreaming of spirals?Use the slider below to see what he might have seen.

Compare the code using HTML Canvas with the Lua equivalent. What do you notice?n = 1

## Exploring Continued Fractions

The tools for exploration here are provided by HTML and JavaScript, with the canvas providing the visual representation.

Compare the code using HTML Canvas with the Lua equivalent. What do you notice?

Every real number, rational and irrational, can be represented as a continued fraction. While normal fractions can only represent rational numbers, continued fractions are different. Rational numbers produce

finitecontinued fractions, while irrationals becomeinfinitecontinued fractions. Study the examples which follow and see what you notice.\[ {37 \over 15} = 2 + \cfrac{1}{2 + \cfrac{1}{7}} \]

Enter a mathematical value to convert to a continued fraction (eg 1.625, 37/15, sqrt(2), cbrt(2), pi, e, phi or any JavaScript Math term, such as Math.sin(pi/4) or even Math.random() - but watch out! Case is important!).Use the slider to study the first few steps of your continued fraction...

## Lua, JavaScript and HTML Canvas

And why not take your web pages to the next level by embedding Lua scripts using the canvas element?
