In learning calculus, students develop intuitive ideas of such concepts as limit, continuity, differentiability, and so on. This intuition is useful in dealing with simple examples, but can be a positive hindrance to deeper understanding of the basic concepts of mathematical analysis. The point of my gallery is to challenge and refine the intuition of better calculus students and students in advanced calculus (Math 409 here at A&M). Anyway, this stuff is neat.
