Week 4: Iteration

Here are notes and materials from our fourth week of MAD:

  • Here are the notes projected up in both classes. Particularly if you missed Monday due to weather, read over these and leave a comment with any questions.
  • All of Vi Hart’s videos on the Fibonacci sequence and plants: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3
  • Vi Hart’s video about angle-a-trons, which I didn’t show in class but you might find helpful. There’s links from that video to a couple of slower videos on creating specific angle-a-trons.
  • You might want to look at the spreadsheet that I showed in class. You can change things in it to play with the numbers!
  • I handed back some of your math autobiographies and goals. Be sure to check out my comments on your goals. The rest will be out to you on Monday!
