Math Meets Romance Novel

Parallel lines have so much in common. It's a shame that they'll never meet!

So. You've heard the lamentations of educators everywhere that regular people aren't interested in learning math. A lot of that is probably just marketing problem. How about if we add a little bit of romance novel-flair to math? Enter this clever little animated GIF above, found at The Meta Picture.

The looping GIF shows a few lessons from geometry:

Parallel lines that never meet

Asymptotes that get closer and closer but can never be together

Tangent lines that only meet once

and the clever tagline:

Math: We know drama
