439- Sequences of Shapes and the Cantor Set

Friday, April 15, 2011: 11:00 AM-12:00 PM
107/108 (Convention Center)
Lead Speaker:
Martin Funk

To help students understand that sequences are not necessarily lists of numbers, the speaker will explore sequences of nonnumeric mathematical objects such as geometric shapes and intervals on the real number line. He will then extend this to develop the famous Cantor set, which has a number of surprising properties and connections to precalculus topics.
