The #MathArtChallenge is just a fun, simple way to engage our brains during this time of unease. All tasks are low tech: paper, pencil, maybe string. Nothing fancy. I would LOVE to see what you come up with. Post on social media with the hashtag #MathArtChallenge!
PROPS TO: Kate Nowak who suggested this.
THE CHALLENGE: Create as many iterations of the Dragon Fractal as you can. See below for my attempts and videos to help.
MATERIALS NEEDED: There are a couple options here.
- Paper and marker (sharpie?). Maybe grid paper, preferably paper that is thin enough to see through (notebook paper is normally thin enough)
- Strips of paper to fold it.
- Whiteboard marker and whiteboard/window?
- ??? I bet you have better ideas than I do.
Here are my attempts:
And below are videos explaining what it is and how you can make it, too!
