In the mathematics classroom, you can share your love of Math with students by graphing or completing a construction of heart shaped graphs. The following math programs are free to download or already built into your computer.
Microsoft Mathematics is a free calculator software (all you need is an Outlook.com or Google account) that will allow you to graph an inequality of a heart by typing in y<x +1-x2 and y>x-1-x2 .
A Cardiod is a heart shaped graph that you can easily construct in Geogebra. The graph I will demo is made by graphing the intersection of a tangent of a circle and a line perpendicular to that tangent on another point on the circle. Watch the following video on how to create that construction.
Grapher for the Mac
Owning a Mac sometimes leads you to think that you do not have access to the mathematics tools that PC users have. But, installed in every Mac is Grapher – a built in graphing utility. Grapher allows you to graph 3D models.
Using the equation (2×2+y2+z2-1)3-x2z310-y2z3=0 creates the picture of this graph in the Grapher app.
