# Math Mondays: Mini-Project for graphing radicals

Here’s a fun little project for graphing radicals that can be done by hand or on a graphing calculator such as Desmos. Students use square and cube roots to create a piece of art.

- an understanding of the shape of the graphs of square roots and cube roots

- how to transform these functions

- range of functions

-and a little creativity from the students.

Students enjoy the openness of this activity. Typically we spend just a day or two on it. But the results are beautiful AND students have a more solid understanding of graphing radicals than they do with a problem set.
