Playing with Dan Anderson’s complex map program

Dan Anderson made a really neat little complex mapping program today:

This program allowed us to do a fun continuation of the project that we did over the weekend:

Looking at the complex map z -> z^2 with kids

So, with each kid tonight I had them just play with the program and then I played a game of tic tac toe with them for fun 🙂

Finally, here’s our tic tac toe game

Definitely a fun project. Can’t wait to play with the program more – this is a really fun subject to share with kids.
