### Artwork Progress (by @brendanmckee99)

I started doing a draft for my artwork, seeing how hard it is to construct a Levy Curve. The picture attached is how far I got, and is halfway through constructing another iteration of the pattern. It is just a draft version and is quite messy and not exact.

### artwork ideas (@bubbling_blah)

My artwork ideas include,

1. golden ratio on the head of a snake

2. four colour theorem on human teeth

3. make up a fractal including the golden ratio

### Iterating functions and fractals (bubbling_blah)

It was a fun lesson. I really enjoyed it even though it was a bit confusing. I am interested in learning more about numbers and functions.

### Iterated Function systems catch up (by keshini98)

I really enjoyed this lesson because we explored areas that I found very interesting. Having done functions in maths before, I thought I would be able to cope with what was happening in class. I did understand the bulk of it, but when we got to the imaginary numbers, things started to spiral out of control. Eventually, when I took another look at it, I did understand it. I have heard of imaginary and complex numbers before, and have always wanted to learn more about them. When we explored this area, I was surprised, confused yet interested at the same time. When plotting the sets of unbounded and bounded sequences, this beautiful fractal emerged and it was a very intriguing shape. Altogether, I found this lesson very interesting.

### Video lesson catch up (by keshini98)

The first video (Donald Duck in Mathamagic Land) was very interesting! It discussed how Mathematics exists in everything, from galaxies to plants, animals, architecture, paintings and even music! I was surprised to hear about the mathematical logic behind the harmony of notes. The next video discussed how the Golden Ratio is evident in everything, including the proportions of our bodies. Even Ancient Greeks used the Golden Ratio in most of their architecture and sculptures. Mathematics is even evident in games such as hopscotch and chess. Overall, this ratio is really cool and seeing it in various forms is intriguing.

### Three Videos (by @natashaaaaaaa_xo)

Hey 🙂

All three video’s really opened my eyes, and made me realise that Math’s

is literally everywhere. The Donald Duck video was very interesting; when it

explained to us the idea that Math’s is related to music and nature. When

watching the Ted Talk video I was surprised to find that the Golden Ratio can

be found in so many places from websites to human DNA to the whole universe

itself. This idea that Golden Ratio appears in so many places really shocked

me. The third video was about Human Beauty; it questioned whether human beauty

is just about numbers. I personally don’t agree that human beauty is just about

numbers. The golden ratio cannot necessarily determine whether someone is

‘beautiful.’ Beauty does not always have to be about the physical appearance.

### Iterating Functions and Complex Numbers (by @iamjazzyh)

This lesson was interesting and a little confusing at the same time. I have encountered functions before however not in this area. Exploring what happened to different numbers when put into an iterating function was quite interesting. It was surprising to find that complex sets of unbounded and bounded sequences could produce, when plotted on a graph, a beautiful fractal. It was confusing at first, but the work made sense at the end.
