This Easter egg is colored using polynomials that give it diagonal stripes. It is the third in a series created to entertain Cramer family children. The idea of putting mathematical designs on Easter eggs originated with the author's grandson, Peter, and was greeted with enthusiasm by the author's grandaughter, Elizabeth.
