Maths Week | 15 – 19 March 2021 | Day 4
To animate Maths Week, your teachers are offering one story a day about an aspect of Maths you probably do not know…yet!
Today, we give the floor to a student of 1ère, Faustine D., who invites you to travel to the heart of fractals, these constructions which mix art and mathematics. Thank you Faustine!
