This is a Flash Animation that goes through some examples and the basic ideas
stepbystep. My impression is that it should be very good for students
struggling with the concept, since they can go forward or backward one step at a
time.
(My course is not so theoretical that I do much with limits, but I at least want
to give students a shot at seeing what one of the most important fundamental
underpinnings is like.)
Larry Husch' "Visual Calculus Project" has a number of other similar units
linked to by Math Tools.
