In MatematicasVisuales you will find visual expositions of mathematical concepts.

MatematicasVisuales intends to complement the work initiated by artiludios, a site with games, puzzles and mathematical curiosities.

Reading Miguel de Guzmán I found a demonstration of the line of Simpson and the Steiner Deltoid. It serves as an introduction to the geometry section.

The concept of function and its graphical representation are a key concept and we dedicate special attention to it in the analysis section.

Geometric representation of the complex numbers facilitates its visualization. The representation of complex functions usually needs dimension fourth. Sometimes, this difficulty is avoided using colors with which useful and attractive representations are obtained.

Thinking in who have to start learning probability we have this section about this subject.

In the history section we approach mathematics through its history. I try to present the origin and growth of some mathematical concepts.

Miguel Cardil made the design of matematicasvisuales.com. You can see more of his works in www.mcardil.com. Do not miss his Stick Figure Museum.

Geometry: Pyritohedron
Pyritohedron | matematicas visuales
If you fold the six roofs of a regular dodecahedron into a cube there is an empty space. This space can be filled with an irregular dodecahedron composed of identical irregular pentagons (a kind of pyritohedron).

Geometry: Dodecahedron and cube
The Dodecahedron and the Cube | matematicas visuales
A Cube can be inscribed in a Dodecahedron. A Dodecahedron can be seen as a cube with six 'roofs'. You can fold a dodecahedron into a cube.
