Doodling Binary Trees in Math Class

We’ve covered the work of the amazing Vi Hart before (Vi is also the daughter of our Math Monday columnist George Hart). Vi describes herself as a “recreational mathemusician” and she can certainly jam on math doodles with all of the chops of a bebop jazz musician. Vi also makes music-music, and has some cool paper instrument projects on her site — along with mathematical food, geometric balloon constructions, hyperbolic beadwork, all sorts of fun and fascinating stuff. It’s so inspiring to see a child who’s obviously embraced science and math with the same passion, enthusiasm, and creativity as her parent.
