# Math Photo: (Sine) Waves on the Beach

While on vacation, I passed some of my time looking for math on the beach, and I saw a sine wave creeping up the shore.

I thought I might be looking *too hard *for something mathematical, thereby seeing things that weren’t really there. Thankfully, Geogebra is well-equipped to justify my observations.

Or perhaps it’s more accurate to say that Geogebra helps enable my obsessions.

This is so beautiful!

Check out what we do in the Math Trek group: http://naturalmath.wikispaces.com/MathTrekResearchTriangle

Maybe we can collaborate somehow?

The Math Treks look interesting–essentially a photo-stream-based game for capturing math images? Fun!

We meet once a week with a local math club and go to different locations, with different topics explored there. What people tell me is kids start noticing math ideas everywhere.

That’s great. I feel like my project has had a similar effect on students–they were definitely seeing the math all around them! I’ll post some of the student work shortly.
