Fractal Scene I | Fractals | Anne M. Burns | "Fractal Scene I" is one of Burns' "Mathscapes" and was created using a variety of mathematical forumluas, including fractal methods to generate the clouds and plant life and vector techniques for the colors. |

Fun Topology | Topology | Paul Nylander | The topology is equivilent to a sphere with 30 holes. The boundary of each hole loops over itself twice with two Reidemeister-I twists and links with 6 others. |

Hippopede of Proclus | Topology | Adam Coffman | Consider a torus, T, as a surface of revolution, generated by a circle with radius r > 0, and with center at distance R > 0 from the axis... |

Iterated Functions | Algebra | Anna | This picture is the plot of '"`UNIQ--math-00000373-QINU`"', which is in blue, '"`UNIQ--math-00000374-QINU`"', which is in pink and which we create by plugging in '"`UNIQ--math-00000375-QINU`"' in for x. The yellow line is '"`UNIQ--math-00000376-QINU`"', were we plug in '"`UNIQ--math-00000377-QINU`"' for x. |

Regular Hexagon to Rectangle | Geometry | You can use the apothem and perimeter of a regular polygon to find its area. | |

Regular Octagon to Rectangle | Geometry | Emma F. | A regular polygon can be "unrolled" to form a rectangle with twice the area of the original polygon. |

Riemann Sphere | Algebra | Unknown | In complex analysis and dynamics, the Riemann Sphere is often used to simplify problems and analysis. It is sometimes denoted as '"`UNIQ--math-00000374-QINU`"', the union of the complex numbers with a point called infinity. |
