Wu Chen Recommends: Fractal Dragons

This month is for all the educators out there.

3 years ago, my cousin Zoel suddenly demanded, “You know about fractal dragons, right?”

I did not. Horrified, Zoel showed me this. I was riveted. To the detriment of many responsibilities I would quickly devour the rest of the videos and anxiously hover, waiting for more. While my ardour has cooled over the years (I’m hardly as passionate over the Tau-Pi debate as she is), I still think that she’s one of the most amazing teachers out there. Her style is engaging, deeply intelligent and never condescending.

Not infrequently I have thought, “If I could be like Vi Hart, I would call my life worthwhile.”

I suggest starting with the Doodling in Math Class series and going from there.
