    Ok math and science brains, it's time to get creative and festive! Using LaTeX or on a graph can you build an amazing christmas tree or holiday/winter scene using math equations? DESMOS is a great tool to use. Post your equation set and photo and maybe you'll get gold membership!

    x = ± 1/(y(√y))

    Makes a nice tree kinda shape

    Just for a start, could add a tree trunk to the bottom.

    You can type: ##|x| = \frac{1}{y^{\sqrt y}}##, that will make it one function.

    The shape itself looks like a a Hershey’s kiss candy without the silver wrapper and pull tab.

    But it looks really cool when colorized and stacked.

    Next you could add some animation parameters to it to make the trees grow into place and snow appear.

    Looks kind of like what I searched online.
