THE CHALLENGE: Create your very own ellipse using just a compass or technology (I did this one using the free desmos.com/geometry)

  1. This reminds me of one of my favorite finds from my favorite used bookstore “A Book of Curves” by E.H. Lockwood. Probably available at a library somewhere. Thanks for sharing all this art.
