Math Tattoos and Unity Games

November 16, 2014

I haven’t had a lot of time to be creative lately. This quarter at work has been particularly busy and I have had 0 free time. I did, however, manage time to get a math tattoo 🙂


The picture was taken right after I got it so it is a little red 🙂

Explanation: My favorite class in grad school was Knot Theory. Knots can be represented in their knot or braid format. The tattoo is the braid representation of the 10_10 knot (10 crossings, 10th in the list). Claire’s birthday is 10-10, so I thought it would be a cute way to show off my love of math and my daughter 😀

As I said, I’ve been working A LOT. Right now I am teaching 5 classes (3 math classes and 2 video game classes), 3 of which are completely new preps for me and designing new lectures is an arduous task. Anyway, in one of my new classes, Game Project I, I am teaching my students the ins and outs of Unity 3D. I have spent the last few weeks showing them how to make this game:

Attack on the Farm

It turned out pretty well considering the limitations. I would have liked to have done a lot more with it, but it took a lot longer to go through the process in class than I expected it to.
