This semester, we are going to have four units of material. The first will be fractals and iteration. We will be creating fractals, working to understand fractal images better, and exploring the process of iteration that is behind fractal images. Fractals hopefully will spark our interest in the infinite and so we will explore the many wonders and paradoxes related to infinity. Once we tire of too much abstract confusion, we will get concrete and spend the rest of the semester exploring geometric design and sculpture.
I have gone back and forth in past semesters, sometimes using this website and sometimes using our Blackboard website on myLesley. This semester I will be keeping materials and links for the class on this website and grades will be posted on myLesley.
