The process will include creating a pattern with nails in a piece of wood that will model the endpoints of the line, and then tying string between the nails to create a pattern or image. The string will represent the linear functions. 8.5 inch square boards will be provided, as well as the nails and embroidery floss. We will also have hammers and safety glasses available for use, though you are welcome to bring your own. Hope you can make it for an evening of family fun at PTHS!
