@JordiGH depends what you're comfortable with. I'd go for a webpage with a range input and a canvas. Jupyter's Interact might be better if you're more comfortable with Python http://ipywidgets.readthedocs.io/en/latest/examples/Using%20Interact.html

hi mathstodon! i'm devin. i'm a math phd student (with under a month to go until my defense!), so this instance seemed like a nice fit. i study neural networks and some math biology, but i also really like combinatorics, as well as many things that are not math. let's follow each other if you want!!
Working on getting this construction set available to purchase.
#introductions I'm interested most seriously in math--analysis more than algebra, learning lately about combinatorial/incidence geometry (e.g. the Erdős distinct-distance problem)--and programming--mostly in Haskell, although I'm curious about C and systems-level things as well. On the amateur plane I like classical music and read haphazardly in the s-f/litfic/poetry space. I try to learn from the example of people who're more knowledgeable or skillful than I am.
Would you recommend a video documentary/story on a mathematician? Thanks!
We're ordering chocolate bars for our conference goody bags. Unfortunately, they're 2×5 blocks, so the infinite chocolate trick doesn't work with them. How annoying!
I will never complain about the way mathematicians name things again: chemists have it way worse.
