Trig graphs - how do you feel today?

By Murray Bourne, 22 Apr 2007

Biorhythms are interesting. There is no science involved, and they should not be taken seriously.

I have added a section in the math site called Biorhythm Graphs. It contains an interactive graph where you can enter your own, or anyone's, birthday and see their biorhythm profile. Check it out.


Biorhythms are interesting because they are examples of trigonometric curves with different periods.

For a skeptical analysis of biorhythm theory, see Skeptik's Dictionary.

HTML: You can use simple tags like <b>, <a href="...">, etc.

To enter math, you can can either:

  1. Use simple calculator-like input in the following format (surround your math in backticks, or qq on tablet or phone):
    `a^2 = sqrt(b^2 + c^2)`
    (See more on ASCIIMath syntax); or
  2. Use simple LaTeX in the following format. Surround your math with \( and \).
    \( \int g dx = \sqrt{\frac{a}{b}} \)
    (This is standard simple LaTeX.)

NOTE: You can mix both types of math entry in your comment.
