This class will take learners through the steps to create a fantasy map that incorporates various mathematical structures, fractals, and more. Students can work on paper or on a tablet with a drawing application (with stylus/pencil). Realistic coastlines, mountains, forests, dwellings, river systems, and other requested features will be covered. This class will be in a follow-along style where learners can direct the landmarks, geological formations, or other features they would like to see...
Students will learn about the coastline paradox, Sierpinski Triangles, Menger Sponges, how rivers are fractal-like, and how to make a fantasy map. Math is more than computation; it is the ability to problem-solve and think creatively. This class will explore fantasy maps with some math.
Students will need a drawing medium that has the ability to erase (either a paper and pencil or a digital drawing program). If a digital program is being used, please ensure they are comfortable with it and have paper and pencil as a back-up. Colored pencils or markers are optional and not recommended until the maps are complete.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
