May the Fourth Be With You...

Today we, as usual, started the class with mental math. This is weird for me, it's the first time I've been the scribe on an actual class day and not a work period.

So anyways, Mr. Max fixed the link in Michelle's post from yesterday so that it actually takes you to the intended site. Then he "wanted to show us a fractal is", people came up with definitions like:
"a rough or fragmented geometric shape that can be subdivided in parts, each of which is
(at least approximately) a reduced-size copy of the whole"

"a geometric shape that has symmetry of scale and is fractal"

Next Mr. Max looked at with us and showed us things like Koch's Snowflake and Sierpinski's Triangle

Then Mr. Max wanted someone to take him on in "The Game" because it was a Friday afternoon and we had to play "The Game".
* Reminder to Mr. Max: get more than 12 bytes of ram on his computer*
...I'm sorry; it's Friday and it was a long, intense week and I figure we could all use a laugh, or three...

Anyways; Mr. Max said that he would give us one question for homework for the weekend:
question # 2 on the first page of the "Sequences Review Questions" booklet.

Also, the wiki assignment and any accelerated math that did not get done is due for Monday as well.

I hope everyone has a super sweet weekend, and that you enjoy my post!
