Need an interesting and attention grabbing activity for those days before holidays or after testing? Try this one on graphing in 3D.
3D graphing has long fascinated me. I have no clue about modern 3D graphing, but I do understand the rudiments of "old school" 3D images. Images are graphed twice, once in red and once in blue, slightly offset. When viewed through your 3D glasses, the blue film filters out the blue and sees only the red. The red film filters out the red and sees only the blue. Our brain pulls the two images together and ,surprise, a 3D image appears. This graph will appear to be a cube when completed.
There are two word documents embedded in this power point. One is the worksheet each student will need and one is the instructions for making 3D glasses. Students have always enjoyed making their own pair. The power point must be in edit mode to access these documents.
