QR Code Digital Self-Portrait

QR Code Digital Self-Portrait | Math Tech | Scoop.it

In this project, students use ASCII alphabet characters to spell their first names numerically - first in decimal, then in binary. Students replace every occurrence of the number 1 (from the binary code) with a QR code that links to information about themselves. In this manner, students create an autobiographical digital self-portrait.

Plant or Program? | math for love

Plant or Program? | math for love | Math Tech | Scoop.it

The plant to the left is not a plant. Rather, it is what’s called an L system: simple iterated recipes for drawing line segments that produces surprisingly sophisticated results.

 

How complex would you imagine the description of this L system is? Believe it or not, here’s all of it:

symbols : X, F (F means draw forward; X is a placeholder)
constants : +, − (+ means “turn right 25°,” – means “turn left 25°”)
start : X
rules : (X → F-[[X]+X]+F[+FX]-X), (F → FF)


To me, this is stunning: all the complexity of that plant picture in just a couple lines of description; it’s the mathematical equivalent of the miracle of the mustard seed: an enormous plant emerging from a tiny kernal. DNA springs to mind as well.

April Fools 2011: Complex Numbers in Math Class

Yesterday afternoon I did another video trick for my Nature of Math class at Biola University. What's the difference between the real and the imaginary? Can an imaginary person (like a person in a YouTube video) do something outside the confines of a video box?
