Desmos Art Functions Card 2018

This assignment was a lot more challenging than I thought it would be, however I know it greatly strengthened my understanding of the concepts taught in math 12 by applying what I know. I came across many challenges in completing this assignment but I am happy with how it turned out. The most difficult part of this card was definitely making an equation for the ribbon on the present. After many hours I was finally able to come up with the complicated polynomial function that I did. Then I just had to adjust and translate the other equations to piece it together. I was also having trouble figuring out a way to include a rational function in the card, as it was the last type that was required. This was when I thought about doing a star which turned out better than I thought. I am much more comfortable with transformations of functions and relations because of the applications and problem solving aspects of this project.
