This article is based upon a handout distributed to participants of the ICTCM minicourse 'Second Life: A Hands-on Introduction for Mathematics Professors'. While the minicourse contained a number of modules and activities, here we focus only on a relatively small portion of these: we illustrate how a combination of basic Second Life building and scripting tools can be used to illustrate normal vectors.
