What is this Masterclass about?

Nature is full of patterns- from the lightning in the sky, to trees and even the insides of your heart. Symmetry in all these examples is fascinating but do you know what links all of them? This session reveals the mathematical connections in nature through interactive drawing exercises and computer simulations.

What are the highlights of this Masterclass?

The students will draw simple shapes like squares and triangles but land up creating something exceptionally interesting. Through drawing and simulations, students get to discover how our nature is filled with exceptionally complicated patterns that result from simple shapes.

What are the key takeaways?

Snowflakes, sunflowers, clouds, lightning, coastlines, mountain tops will never look the same to the student after this session. They get to visualize self similarity and relate it to the patterns they would have seen before to develop an appreciation for mathematics.

How do I prepare for this Masterclass?

Ensure the following is available for the session:

1. Pencil
2. Ruler

What are the Post-Class Assignments?

Make your fractal

Using the understanding from the class, draw a fractal using your own choice of shapes (triangles, circles, hexagons, squares..) Upload a video of you explaining how you created your fractal. Also, upload a picture of what you drew.
