Dimensions are fun – what do you see? what do you notice?
Side Note: I talk about dimensions when covering combining like terms. One analogy – A 3D banana can’t combine with a 2D banana (or whatever noun seems to go with the variable you have). We have fun with expressions using various animals/objects and their dimensions. Variables (things) and their exponents (dimensions) need to match to be able to combine them.
Hexagon and parametric spiral play. I find myself doodling with code lately more than with my pen. I have one more scripting algebra post, but feel like I have a much larger library for a pre-calc set of activities. Thoughts?
I doodled this GIF after two days of painting the canvas below. I think I am in the process of preparing for my fall classes and students. Art is definitely an outlet – especially when it’s math + art.
