"Still Life: Five Glass Surfaces on a Tabletop"

Innumerable surfaces that we cannot touch or see or even know can be seen by mathematicians. They have long relied on their powers of imagination to picture abstract surfaces. Richard Palais of the University of California, Irvine, and graphic artist Luc Benard used the magic of computer graphics to recreate these abstract surfaces in familiar yet intriguing settings.

"A DaVinci Blackboard Lesson in Multi-Conceptual Anatomy"

Some things never grow old. Biology teacher Caryn Babaian of Bucks County Community College in Newtown, Pennsylvania used the iconic Leonardo da Vinci Vitruvian Man to illustrate rotation, transparency and transverse section in her anatomy class. Babaian requires her students to draw the image in their notebooks as they watch it take shape on the blackboard.

"Cockroach Portrait"

Cockroach haters, look your enemy in the eye! Photographing small animals like this 2-centimeter long Cuban banana cockroach, has its challenges: You can focus on only a small part of the tiny animal in one shot. David Yager of the University of Maryland relied on technologies old and new.
