We have read several texts – “Think Maths” by Ian Stewart; “Why is math so useful?” by Michael Lemmonick, and an excerpt from a ToK text called “Discovered or invented?”. Today, we watched a video about Fractals – “Fractals, the colors of infinity“. The multiple choice questions for your final will come from this video.

Beyond this, it is worthwhile for you (especially those of you who enjoy math) to consider some of the following:

- Plato’s Meno – Mathematics and forms
- A Mathematician’s Lament – Paul Lockhart explores the essence of mathematics… and how it should be taught
- A TED talk given by Benoit Mandelbrot
- a ‘zooming in’ on a Mandlebrot set
- Or, perhaps you’d like to draw your own fractal…
- Perhaps you’d like to know a bit more about Fibbonacci
- A NOVA special on Fractals
- A Letter to a Young Mathematician – by Ian Stewart
