At the 2013 Bridges Conference I presented a scheme to create patterns of arcs within circles that represent functions. This idea has been extended to circles in any modulo with beautiful results and surprising number patterns that inspire deep mathematical thinking. I discuss a web app I created for touch devices that allows play and exploration with these designs.
