Thurs Sept 7 – Still Printing Fractals

Today in class we’ll continue where we left off on Tuesday, which means that we’ll be 3D printing the remaining¬†First Fractals and discussing the corresponding blog post writeups.

Maybe if we have time we’ll watch this video to get a quick overview of how the Koch snowflake could possibly enclose finite area and yet have an infinite perimeter. We’ll work out the details exactly later, but for now we’ll just plant some seeds in our brains:

Your homework over the weekend will be to add a section to the end of your First Fractal blog posts about what you printed, and to read the very beginning of the Fractals book that you bought for this class.  See the Assignments page for details.
