Happy Valentine’s Day from the Stevenson math faculty! The graph in polar coordinates is called a cardioid, named for its heart-like form.

Math students and faculty participated in Global Game Jam 2023. The goal of a game jam is to come together and make a videogame, or a non-digital game like a board game or card game in a short period of time (usually based around a theme). Global Game Jam (GGJ) is the world’s largest game jam event, with over 30,000 jammers across 632 sites in 93 countries. Stevenson University is one of those sites!

This year the theme of GGJ was “roots”. Julian Cha, Applied Math ’23, (pictured above) created a game called “Plan B” where players control Plan B the robot and attempt to find their spaceship by fighting through plant-like monsters.
