Function World




















































This comic is the product of my former life as an engineering student and math tutor. Since I burned all my old college notes, I had to dust off my TI-83 graphing calculator for reference material. I also consulted Wolfram Alpha - that website is amazing.

Also: there is still time to order Incidental Comics posters before the holidays! Follow this link or visit the "Poster Shop" tab at the top of the page.

Great post! I actually wrote a maths-based poem a few days ago. Although, unlike you, I have no mathematic background, so I fear all my references are based on incomplete knowledge! Check it out if you can:

Very cute but...the last relationship is not a function...

Actually none of them are functions - they're all thrill rides!

Putting math problems into a piece of art! Nifty!

Math is a very interesting subject, especially if we can add our own interesting twist/s to it.. As tutors, we're responsible in making sure that our students pay full attention, and nothing gets their attention better than an interactive lesson! I bet these roller coaster rides can make my next tutorial a bit interesting. Thanks for sharing this! :)
