This educational Demonstration, primarily for vector calculus students, shows the moving Frenet frame (or TNB frame, for tangent, normal, and binormal). The unit tangent vector, unit inward normal vector, and binormal vector, as well as the osculating, rectifying, and binormal planes slide along the curve.
