60- Picturing Functions and Functions of Pictures with Sketchpad

Thursday, October 17, 2013: 11:00 AM-12:00 PM
Key Ballroom 6 (Hilton)
Lead Speaker:

  • Functions and Pictures Handout.pdf (428.5 kB)

  • Graphics special effects are everywhere: TV, the Internet, the movies, games—everywhere. But kids seldom think about the functions that create these images. We’ll distort pictures with Sketchpad’s custom transformations, create fractal plants from iterated functions, and define a function by drawing its graph on the screen. Classroom-ready activities provided.
