The Math Images Project
Welcome all those who enjoy interesting images, to the Math Images Project! A particular welcome to students at all levels, teachers, mathematicians! Here you can find some amazing and often beautiful images related to mathematics and also learn something about the math behind the images.
Our goal is to give people a new and enjoyable perspective on mathematics and to encourage people to learn even more by contributing to our site.
A favorite view of ours is: Mathematics is the science of pattern. It's not just numbers and formulas!
To begin, you can just click on an interesting image. On the upper right, there are suggestions for where to begin your exploration of the site. There are many more things available on this site. They can be accessed using the left sidebar.

Math is for Everyone
One of the objectives of The Math Images Project is to provide a variety of explanations for each of the images on our site, so that everyone can understand (or learn) some of the math behind the images. So, if you notice an image that's missing a good explanation, please ask about it, and, if you understand some of the math behind it, please consider contributing to our site!
