Math. Computer science. Computers were invented to do complicated mathematics. But JavaScript wasn’t. It was created to assemble components and be written directly in web page markup. So how does Math fit into all of this? Well, JavaScript has had a Math object since its inception in 1997.

Sooo, in this talk you will discover exactly how much math can we do with JavaScript! From sine to log to hypotenuse, you will wind your way through the Math object in JavaScript and see just how closely you can mimic a graphing calculator. Join Jennifer and travel back in time, using computer science to do math again!

Jennifer will discuss the history of math, computer science, and JavaScript. Then you'll hop forward in time with her and do tons of wacky mathematics using JavaScript’s impressively extensive Math object. Join Jennifer, and you’ll see, a world of pure mathemagination… in JavaScript.
