Uhm, maybe they give their girlfriends some valentine ‘stuff’ with some hidden math on it. For example, a greeting card with a Sierpinski Triangle decorated with heart fractals such as the one shown below.

Or maybe some GeoGebra flower applet.

You inspired me this GeoGebra creation:

As said in the comment under the picture, it would be a good mathematical challenge to automatize the creation of the functions for the smaller hearts. Some Calculus needed for sure, and mastery of the parametrics equations too. Someone want to try it? 😉

Amazing blog by the way Guillermo.

This is great way for students to integrate art and math concepts with technology and still have fun at the same time of investigating patterns.

Love it!
