Fractals! Fractals! Fractals!

By Geeta Paul

History and Art are her favourite subjects. I landed up specialising in Molecular Biology. Twenty eight years later I teach Biology and Global Perspectives. On the way here I taught Textiles, Mathematics and Chemistry. Working with diverse people, both students and teachers, challenges and interests me. I love watching movies and documentaries, reading and spending time roaming around my house and garden talking to my dog, plants, fish and other creatures. As a teacher what thrills me the most is designing multidisciplinary learning opportunities based on abstract concepts and ideas. I truly believe that there is a higher and wider significance to life which one should aspire to understand through learning; especially through the learning of a subject.

About the workshop

"Clouds are not spheres, mountains are not cones, coastlines are not circles, and bark is not smooth, nor does lightning travel in a straight line." - Benoit Mandelbrot, introduction to The Fractal Geometry of Nature.

 

In the ‘Fractals everywhere’ workshop you will explore patterns and understand its geometry. We will then look for fractals in objects that we come across in daily life and create our own fractals! Let us be prepared to move around, investigate and discover together!
