Desmos Art Functions Card 2018


I found the Christmas card a fun experience overall, but it took a longer period of time than i would have liked. I figured out which equation to use by deciding on what i wanted the picture to look like and what equation worked best for each segment. It took a bit of time to get into a rhythm with translating the equations.A strategy i used was to get the equation into a place pretty close to what I wanted before going into specifics, like decimals. This assignment helped me understand transformations of functions and relations better by visually showing me how each graph moves based on the equation. It was cool to see the graph physically move across the grid.
