Rosettes In My Room

As I was looking around for some sort of rosette I found it at the most unusual time. I came home from class and lied down on my bed. I looked up and there on my light cover was this design. A perfect example of a rosette, specifically a dihedral. This is an 18 fold with a 20 degree rotation. I found this so fascinating because I never knew that I could mathematically calculate the light in my room! I also never thought I would be using it for an assignment. I just found this interesting because it came to me at a time I wasn’t even looking for it. Here I am simply laying on my bed, and I find a rosette on my ceiling.

What I also find interesting is the Fibonacci Sequence which was mentioned a few times in class. I love the idea of math in nature and how everything can be connected by a simple set of patterns in numbers, yet its so complex at the same time. There was once this show on Netflix all about the Fibonacci sequence and how everything was connected by these numbers. I was watching it but never finished and I can not seem to remember the name of the show either. I tried looking on Netflix and I couldn’t find anything that jogged my memory, so if anyone knows the name of the show I am talking about or happens to stumble upon it feel free to comment. For now I have found this wonderful video that illustrates the Fibonacci Sequence. I am hoping we will spend sometime talking about it in class so I can learn more about it,

and by learning I am hoping others will find it just as interesting as I do.

Saying Hello

Hello, my name is Jamila and I am very excited for the course. I am looking forward to all of the interesting math topics that we will be covering that are not in traditional math classes. Hope everyone has a fantastic first week!
