For OCR A Level (H446) 1.3.4 students have to understand how Google’s PageRank algorithm works.

I spent a lesson confusing my students today as we worked through each step of the algorithm by hand and wished there was a tool which could visualise each step and check your working.

I put this tool together so that you can define any link structure and see how the links between pages affect the page rank score through each iteration of the algorithm. Hope it’s helpful
