In class with Ms. Csaki today, you made your very own 3D models of 4-dimensional hypercubes! Take good care of it!
After you finished your model, Ms. Csaki should have given you a copy of the Discover Magazine article Chaos Hits Wall Street to read by Tuesday. While this is an old article (1993!) it addresses a lot of the topics we’ll be discussing in the second part of the course. We’ll see some updated takes on the theories presented in the next articles.
Finally, you should have also been given a piece of graph paper in class and told to come here to find out what to do with it. Here’s what you do:
- Fold it in half lengthwise (“hot dog” style).
- Unfold and put a dot on the left edge of your crease.
- Flip a coin (or use some other random procedure). If the coin lands heads, draw a diagonal that goes over and up one square. If the coin lands tails, draw a diagonal that goes over and down one square.
- Continue with this pattern, creating a zig-zag across your paper, until you reach the other side. Bring that in on Monday as well.
