What better way to show what you know about functions than to use them to create “art”? Here is a challenge for you. Go to Desmos.com and create a work of art that uses at least ten functions of which you must include one of each of the conics – a hyperbola, a parabola, an ellipse, and a circle. Feel free to limit the range of each function as needed. Shading can also be applied. An example is provided.
