Mathematical imagination learning to see the invisiblew


Published on

A five minute presentation on imagination in mathematics. I explore the idea of dimensions first of all through the 5th dimension via constructions of cubes, and I then ote that in projecting these we are encountering negative numbers. I then look at the coastline of Ireland as an example of an object with fractal dimension and finish off with the idea of fractal narratives. There are a number of embedded links in the presentation to relevant resources on the web, and slides have notes attached.
