Chalk Art for Math Daddies
My daughter has water-soluble sidewalk chalk and free reign of the backyard.
Here’s the thing though: As adults, we rarely have to go outside our comfort zone. I don’t draw much. Most of my adult life, the drawings I’ve done are geometric figures.
So I’ve been mixing things Pickle wants me to draw with the things I can draw well. She asks for something, and I add to it.
A dinosaur chasing a square root function.
A black sheep standing on convex polygons.
Snakes on a plane. Get it?
An owl and a banana enclosed in an isosceles triangle.
A robot with a striped face and a RAY gun. See it? RAY?
A blue sheep walking on a rhombus.
The locus of points equidistant from a baby.
…and tangent to a turquoise bee.
A linear function tangent to two sheep and a blue stick-cat bounded by a negative parabola.
My kid is gonna blow the socks off her math teacher.
