## Cooling towers: Why is it in this shape?

The cooling towers usually have the shape of a hyperboloid (as shown in the picture below). More specifically, it is a hyperboloid with inward-curved shape instead of outward-curved shape, which we can call the negative Gaussian curvature. This design is … Continue reading “Cooling towers: Why is it in this shape?”

## We Bare Bears In Mathematica

In this project, we used Mathematica to recreate the three bears: Ice Bear, Grizzly, and Panda from We Bare Bears. Ice bear is a polar bear with white fur, Grizzly is a brown bear with brown fur and Panda is … Continue reading “We Bare Bears In Mathematica”

## Merry Calculus

We created a holiday season postcard using parametric equations and threedimensional shapes. To create the effect of the smoke coming out of the chimney, we overlapped two parametric equations. The chimney and the tree trunk are the shape of a … Continue reading “Merry Calculus”

## RA’s Ice cream Shop

For our final project we wanted to explore the shapes of everyday objects. We decided on looking at ice cream sundaes, breaking it down into 4 components: a scoop of ice cream on a cone, a sprinkle, a wafer cookie, … Continue reading “RA’s Ice cream Shop”

## Whole-y Grain! You Bread My Mind!

Bready or not, here we crumb! Oftentimes, we forget the relationship between everyday math and the other creations of the world. Our project highlights that while there is also an immense amount of diversity, math exists everywhere and we can … Continue reading “Whole-y Grain! You Bread My Mind!”

## Modeling Drug Impact Using Multiple Variables

Designing a 3D Representation of Drug Efficacy The purpose behind this project was to potentially create a simple graph that could be used by both consumers and physicians and would inform the consumer or physician on the medicationâ€™s effectiveness depending … Continue reading “Modeling Drug Impact Using Multiple Variables”
