I couldn’t resist this GIF for my algebra students. Foiling can be such fun!
My daughter started playing with moiré in procreate after I fiddled with it in a previous post. You know we breathe math in our home. She wanted to share:
I received a question today about what curve is parallel to a parabola. I sat for a minute and realized that it wasn’t another parabola. It required parametric equations (at least if you wanted to keep it simple). That of course lead to code:
The parametric equations for the parabola are:
The parallel curve equations are:
So I doodled and was pleasantly surprised when Sierpinski-like triangles formed. I am sure that a million people have discovered this before me, but I felt like I found a magic portal.
And that lead to coding (of which is currently a mess, and I will post later).
And one more version:
This activity assumes that the skills from SA1-SA7 were introduced (if-else, logical operators, random(), text(), rect(), variables, loop, pow, for, functions, translate etc.). This activity will introduce modulo.
In this activity, learners can either create their own project for even and odd functions, or they can modify and learn with code examples below.
Save work often and have fun (or just start over if you break it).
Example Concepts: even/odd functions, function operations, translation, variables, coordinate planes, ordered pairs, conditions, loops, random numbers, functions, etc..
Seriously though, I am honored and humbled by the opportunity to share all the hard work that has gone into creating the materials on this website. I hope to continue growing, learning, and sharing with you all.
I know it is an obvious one, but it’s what I doodled tonight…
