Mappa Mundi. This is what we thought the world looked like about 1000 years ago. You can see that unicorns lived in one of the regions.
This page is for the use of students in Dr. Waiveris's math classes at CCSU.

M 218 students--There is no incorrect information in problem 10 on your homework assignment but some of the information is redundant. Add the following information: 9 of the sugar eaters do not eat wheat and are not vegetarians. 47 are vegetarians that eat sugar and 70 of the guests eat sugar. I will hand out a hard copy of this in class on Monday. It has also been attached to a note on your class page.

M 218 and M 221 Students--Your third homework assignment is attached to a note on your class page. The IFS questions are also attached to a note on your class page.

The first part of your IFS assignment is attached to a note on your class page and the gallery is open for posting. There are already more than 50 new galleries opened with some pretty good images. Get your galleries open. The last day to post images is a week away. Remember you can get points for as many as 8 images.

Check out this link for an interesting video on cardinalities of infinite sets and the Banach-Tarski Theorem.

CCSU hosted CAMPY 2015 on May 14, 2015. The students in my session created fractal and geometric images using IFS 2.0. Go to the 2015 CAMPY Gallery in the IFS Galleries section below to see the great work they did.

IFS 2.0 and IFS 3.0 available for download. IFS 3.0 is an upgrade of IFS 2.0 and can be used to create animations. You will still need a program like GIF Construction Kit (which I use) to convert the .bmp images to .gif images and animate the images. But it is pretty neat. Also gifninja is a free piece of software that can be downloaded from the internet and used to convert the .bmp images into .gif images. Check out the IFS animations gallery below to see some examples.

FYI--All of the textbooks that will be used in the courses offered by the Department of Mathematical Sciences this semester are listed on the Department's homepage which can be accessed by going to the CCSU homepage. This should help you shop around to find the best price as well as get a head start on a course.

IFS 2.0 and IFS 3.0 are free and available to any person or institution that would like to use them. Any person or institution that downloads a copy is also welcome to make it free and available to any other people or institutions that would like to use it. To download a free copy of IFS 2.0 or IFS 3.0 and get in on the fun yourself go to the downloads page. There is also a gallery of 50 sample images with the transformations below.
