In algebra, we learn that the equation $x^2+y^2=1$ describes a circle. Less commonly-known is the fact that $x^2+y^2-x^2y^2=1$ describes a square (with some extra bits that we ignore). To see why, we can move some terms around and factor: […]

Recall that these projects were very open-ended so that students could go in a direction of their choice. Some really got into their work, with truly inspirational results. The presentation that Sepid gave at a recent meeting of the Bay Area Mathematical Artists was actually work she was doing on her Final Project (read about it here). […]
