String Challenge

Strings need not begin and end on axes that are at right angles to each other which we call Cartesian. It is quite interesting that Descartes himself did not use axes at right angles. We consider this a challenge because students have to figure out how to move both the axes and the lines. Once you understand the process there is no end to the beauty of the string diagrams you can make. We suggest you check out the Web and Wikipedia for more ideas.
