M13644: Mathematical Art in Splash 2019 (Nov. 23 - 24, 2019)
Do you like pretty graphs and fractals and want to know why they do neat things? Do you love math and/or art and want to generate a bunch of math-y art to put on your wall? Do you want to like math, but feel like it's usually too stressful, fast-paced, or intimidating? Am I going to use the words "math" and "art" a painful number of times? Come make art with math, while using the art to figure out how the math works! This class will consist of playing with visualization/graphing software to make pretty images with math, learning how equations give rise to interesting patterns, and using this knowledge to make even cooler things. We'll talk about things like matrices, parametric curves, and recursion, but whether or not you've learned about those before, I bet you never took time in math class to make art with them. (If nothing else, I promise you'll leave with a cool phone wallpaper.)
