This website provides an interactive simulation and tutorial to help students in understanding the sun-earth-moon relationship.  There are three tutorial pages that explain the elements of the lunar phases diagram one-by-one.  Second, there is the lunar phases tool and quiz. The tool is an interactive version of the diagram and can be used to solve the problems posed by the quiz.
