## Fractals

*frac·tal // **noun, Mathematics, Physics // **a geometrical or physical structure having an irregular or fragmented shape at all scales of measurement between a greatest and smallest scale… [^]*

This came up at the most recent Mudd Up! Book Club, which led me to looking up this, which led me to the video below. Don’t like the way dude says “singing and dancing” near the end, and a couple other small things (and the way he looks at me) but otherwise fux wit it.

I am a math professor and a huge fan of Dutty Artz. Thanks for posting this…you basically combined all my interests into one blog post, which was amazing! I’m going to use this in my math class next semester as a non-Eurocentric example of mathematics in the real world.

Nice one for posting about this, I stumbled upon that recently : http://www.ted.com/talks/ron_eglash_on_african_fractals.html it’s very closely related and as most TED talks, really interesting!
