Fun with Fractals

Recreational mathematician” Vi Hart has a fantastic series of videos explaining mathematical / geometric concepts via notebook doodles. She talks a mile a minute, but with such enthusiasm that it’s a lot of fun to watch her work.

The video above is about fractals. Others in the series: snakes and graphs, binary trees and stars. The one about candy buttons is fun, too. She has a YouTube channel, a Facebook page and a blog.
