Talking ~ Trig Graphs -- Dressage!!!

Don't trig graphs remind you of dressage?

I was sitting in maths, we are currently doing trig work, and the whole time I am picturing a horse busy trotting or cantering along the lines of the graphs on the board, and as I'm drawing them I also imagine seeing the horse rounding itself around corners...

I don't know if I'm the only one, just thought I'd share this. At least for now maths has brightened up a teensy bit....

I always thought of that in high school math. My teacher wrote an equation once that kind of looked like the beginnings of a test too :)

I need to go cry now...this is reminding me that school's right around the corner for me. =P But yeah, they do look like a dressage test...now if I ride the wrong pattern at a dressage show I can just say I got it messed up with my trig graphs. =D

To see the wind's power, the rain's cleansing, and the sun's radiant life, one need only to look at the horse.

I think we are all just crazy obsessed horse people and everything reminds of us of our horses in some way

LOL. It's been proven now that maths is indeed necessary for riding.

Hmm, I never realized that. I think math just got a whole lot more interesting. Thanks for sharing that. Although one time my dad did have to put things into horse terms for me just so I would understand what he was teaching me.
