For three days this week and another three next week, during this round of standardized testing, my assigned task at work, for four to five hours each day, is to guard a locked door to the testing area. I’m not allowed to bring a computer, a cell phone, or even a book, so I brought a clipboard, with ample blank paper, and a handful of freshly-sharpened pencils. As a result, this mostly-mathematical blog will be detouring into drawings for a while. These were the first two.
I turn 54 years old today, so here is a 54-pointed star to mark the occasion. The nine repetitions of the six colors of the spectrum work because (6)(9) = 54.
The pink hendecagons are regular, and there are twenty-two of them.
I just found this on Facebook. I made it two years before starting this blog.
