Here’s a “from-the-archives” post

I’ve been recently having more and more conversations – some privately and some publicly – on using the turtle module for more than just drawing circles and patterns!

Some of you may know this is one of my favourite topics – in this example, we’re using it to visualise how sines and cosines are linked to the motion in a circle

How many children (and adults) learn about sines and cosines but don’t know what they really are?

@s_gruppetta Mesmerizing. I remember my professor on college who demonstrated this by drawing on an empty plastic bottle and then rotating it to see what happens in each plane.

@jakub_neruda I could watch it all day too - it calms you down, somehow!
