In this DriveBy, we'll cover math topics most of you have already seen in high school, but have also probably never used since then and forgotten. We'll see how these topics apply to programming using the Processing framework.

It's always a good idea to think through what you're trying to build before actually coding it. We will be using Grapher to visualize our functions because it's easy to use, very versatile, and is already installed on your Mac. If you're on Windows, get a Mac already (or try one of these and let us know which is good).
