Sharing Jez Swanson’s amazing Fourier transformation program with kids

I saw an incredible tweet from Jez Swanson yesterday:

The program makes the ideas behind Fourier transformations accessible to kids and I decided to share the program with the boys this morning. So, I had each of them play around with it on their own for about 10 to 15 min. Here’s what they thought was interesting. (sorry for all of the sniffing – I’ve got a cold that’s been kicking my butt for the last few days):

I think Swanson’s program is a great program to share with kids – feels like at minimum it would be fantastic to share with kids learning trig.
