In this paper, we will describe how one can use technology to provide students with graphical representations and animations as they study certain ideas and well-studied objects of hyperbolic geometry, which have application to web-based data structures. These objects and ideas include the Poincare disk model, distances, midpoints, angles, hyperbolic triangles, reflections about hyperbolic lines, and distance- preserving transformations. With regards to the technology, we will discuss an interactive applet that interfaces Visual Basic and Mathematica and shows graphic representations of the ideas and objects just mentioned.
