Mathematical Illustrations

A total set of 23 cover illustrations for the new EPN mathematics schoolbooks.

The illustrations represent a part from the curriculum from each book: trigonometry (A/C) and derivative (B/D). The actual formulas from inside the books are used to create the illustrations. This way we’re able to show the students the beauty of mathematics and thus creating a strong link between cover and content.

Formula used:

x1 = 34 • sin(θ • a) – 34 • cos(θ • b)
y1 = ½ • 34 • cos(θ • c) – ½ • 34 • sin(θ • d)

x2 = 34 • sin(θ • e) – 34 • cos(θ • f)
y2 = ½ • 34 • cos(θ • g) – ½ • 34 • sin(θ • h)

0 ≤ θ ≤ 2π
