Pre-calculus students have been creating art in Mrs. Merritt’s classroom – using math!


We’ve been doing a transformations of functions project in my pre-calculus classes and students did such a great job! They drew these pictures with math. They had to use their knowledge of what makes a function move up or down or left or right and what makes a function stretch or shrink and type in the equations for each piece to create a picture. The requirement was to use at least three different types of functions (lines, parabolas, circles, absolute value, etc) and to use at least 35 equations to create their picture. Several of them were very creative and did a lot more than 35. These are just a few examples!  – Mrs. Merritt, CCHS Math Teacher
