In abstract and computer generated art, a real object can be
represented by a simplified set of lines. Can you create a picture
using mathematical instructions?
Age 14 to 16 Challenge Level:
You may want to take a look at Parallel
Lines before attempting this problem.
Take a look at the interactivity below which allows you to move the
vertices and make different squares.
The adjacent sides of a square are perpendicular to each
How would you describe going from one vertex to the next? And to
the next? And to the next?...
