There’s something that is just amazing about this graph. **I love it.** It’s perfectly, slightly asymmetrical. It is deep and detailed and simply beautiful. And my student made it which makes even more awesome.

For those of you unaware, this is a product of Sam Shah’s *Families of Curves* project that I shamelessly stole for my algebra II students. This piece was created with the function:

The parameter, *k*, varied on the interval [-7, 7] with steps of 0.25. The window dimensions are approximately [-3.5, 3.5] in the *x* direction and [-120, 120] in the *y* direction.

I’m printing this out as a poster to hang in my room and will be giving the artist a print of their own. I can’t wait to do this project again next year to add to what will become quite the mathematical art collection!

Tomorrow I’ll post a few of the other amazing pieces my students came up with!
