I thought it might be fun if we created our own math related images that can be translated into a movie title, or perhaps even book and song titles. The first person who guesses the title correctly then gets to create their own image.

So, I will start with a movie title:

Great idea!

I watch a good amount of movies but am drawing a complete blank here. Is the film pre or post 2000?

Good guess, but not what I had in mind. :D
What is the parabola supposed to represent? I also assume the arrow pointing at the red dot is another clue?

The red dot is a point on the curve (doesn't have to be parabolic)...a particular type of point where the derivative is zero and the second derivative is negative...

This one should be pretty simple (it's a movie).

(Hurray for my decent tablet drawing skills! XD)

Since I'm a fan of Kevin Bacon...I know the answer to this one!

Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon! :eek:


I'm only playing...the real answer is

Either one is acceptable. (Rofl)

You've now earned the right to post a picture if you want! (Sun)

Hi Jameson, you got it right!(Clapping)

Now, you get to create your own image!

Oh no! Should have thought this through. (Wasntme)

Fair enough though, I will comply with the rules although I must warn everyone that I am no artist. I shall post my contribution tomorrow!

No worries. I drew out 2 ahead of time and I wouldn't say they're the best drawings you'll ever see. (Rofl)

Hey, please don't feel obligated to make one of your own...because I should have said in my previous reply that "Feel free to post your own image if you would like..."...:eek:

I can't wait. XD

With that, I assume it's safe for me to post another one (it's a movie) and hopefully it makes sense? XD
