# Calendar Fall 2014

Date Time Place Description
September 4 3:30 p.m. LCB 219 Chapter Meeting
September 25 3:30–4:30 p.m. LCB 219 Temari Workshop
Ever wonder what the world would be like without parallel lines? Welcome to life on a sphere! After an introduction to a geometry that won’t let itself be tied down to a plane, we will discuss spherical symmetries. And to make these ideas concrete, we will craft our own Japanese temari balls! Instructions to finish.
October 22 9:00 a.m.–12:00 p.m. T. Benny Rushing Mathematics Center MegaMenger Fractal Build, Part 1
A Menger Sponge is a three-dimensional fractal which can be made from cubes attached together. Twenty single cubes made from business cards can be joined to make a Level 1 Menger Sponge, twenty Level 1 sponges make a Level 2 sponge, and twenty Level 2 sponges make a Level 3. Join our level 2 build! Flyer

December 4 3:30–4:30 p.m. LCB 219 Snowflake Workshop
A fractal is a natural phenomenon that exhibits a repeating pattern that displays at every scale. They are found in places as small as a cell membrane and those as large as the solar system. Winter holidays are just around the corner, and what can be a better way to welcome them than crafting 3D snowflake-fractals and watching a great documentary “Hunting The Hidden Dimension” (Nova 2008).
