Fractiles’ Mandala, Based on Angles of Pi/7 Radians
Although this was based on something I constructed using the Fractiles7 magnetic tiling toy, I did not have enough magnetic pieces to finish this. The idea was, therefore, converted into a (nonEuclidean) construction using Geometer’s Sketchpad, and then refined using … Continue reading
