- Mathematical Induction is basically just the "domino effect".

Here's one explanation (from California) and another (from Regina).

This page (from the 'Interactive Real Analysis' course at Seton Hall University) may be a bit abstract, (but look at the bottom for an example of why you need to be careful when using proof by induction!)

You might also check our 'raw list' (of links provided without comment) to see if there are any more examples there that we haven't yet included here.

If you have come across any good web-based illustrations of these and
related concepts,

please do let
us know and we will add them here.
