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.

Thank you so much! Its like you’ve flipped a switch in my brain somehow. Its my 2nd time around in calc1, I just couldn’t wrap my mind around calc. concepts until I found you. And that’s saying a lot because I had to take trig. 3 times before I felt competent enough to take calc. Please accept my sincere thanks. You Sir, are a God send.
