Jason Davies created this lovely interactive method for visualizing prime numbers, Prime Number Patterns. As a companion to El patrón de los números primos by Omar E. Pol, the piece very elegantly allows you to explore the prime numbers as well as their relationships to other numbers. By scrolling in any direction, you can pan through the numbers and zoom in and out to see the patterns more clearly.

I would love to see more visual tools like this that would help explain math and numbers to people who are visual and kinesthetic learners.
