4.2 Licking/grooming-arched back nursing Rat mothers perform a number behaviours towards their pups: they build a nest for their pups, keep them in it and occasionally lick them and nurse them. (Rat fathers have a parental role too but it is not essential and the experimental set-up is simplified by his absence.) Licking occurs predominantly at the time when the dam arches her back and nurses her young, allowing a composite behaviour of licking/grooming-arched back nursing to be identified and recorded. If licking/grooming-arched ba

Graphical representation of eigenvectors
The Graphical representation of eigenvectors simulation aims to help students make connections between graphical and mathematical representations of eigenvectors and eigenvalues. The simulation depicts the two components of a unit vector in the xy-plane, and the same vector under several different transformations that can be chosen by the user. A slider allows students to change the orientation of the initial vector. The simulation shows whether or not the vector is an eigenvector, and if so dis
