I'm giving a talk to non-scientists very soon and I'd like to include an animation to help make certain things a bit clearer, intuitively. I'm new to Mathematica, but I'm sure what I want to do is possible. I just haven't been able to do it, and I don't really know where to start, so I'm hoping someone can help me with it.
I want to graphically illustrate operations on intervals, e.g.,
interval = Interval[-0.5,0.5]
narrowint = 0.5 * interval (= Interval[-0.25,0.25])
posbias = narrowint + 0.35 (= Interval[0.1,0.6]
with a simple axis with range [and I'd like it if the interval's width and midpoint smoothly transitioned as these operations occur.
Hope this makes sense. Any help would be much appreciated.
