The wave equation may be treated in a course required of all engineering students. To aid understanding, it is desirable that a variety of "pictures" of wave motion be available. We describe the results of a computer program that generates pictures of a vibrating string for a variety of initial conditions, and discuss how these may be used in class discussion.
