EASIER THAN YOU THINK...

Iterations (Repetitions)

A cross section of a nautilus shell, showing the regular chambersMany things repeat.

When you learn to count … 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, … you are increasing your number by one every time.  Many number sequences are nothing more than always repeating the same algorithm.  When a creature produces its shell, it is repeating the same simple building instructions as it grows, thereby creating a spiral (or one shell of a bivalve).

On a semi-humorous, semi-serious note, the idea of a day that kept repeating itself formed the basis for the entertaining movie, Groundhog Day.

In this part of the website I want to help you explore such repeating things.

Fractals ~ Repeating patterns with geometric shapes

I have been watching your “Integration technique” videos with high expectation and excitement. They never fail to give me a lot of joy and much pleasure. You must have been one hell of teacher at your time! … just continue making highly enjoyable and intellectually stimulating videos. … Unfortunately, what you learn at the university, you hardly ever see again in your office job. That is why I try to repeat some thing I learned: to enjoy it a bit more, to marvel upon beauty, and to keep my brain sharp. There is where your videos come in perfectly: interesting, amusing and thought provoking problems neatly presented. … You do your best to share your passion, knowledge and experience. The least I can do is to say an honest “Thank you!” As I said, your videos give me much pleasure. You may freely let other people know that. … Rest assured that I shall be watching your videos in the future. With joy and excitement. And I shall comment on them from time to time. You just continue making them.
