Bring the address to class, and write to me at least once before the next class meeting. 2. Bring to class some physical object that has some mathematical interest, and be prepared to explain why you find it interesting. This can be a book, a poster, a small sculpture, a toy, etc. 3. Write a half-page (2 paragraphs) about something you find mathematically interesting, and be prepared to present it to the class next week. (This can be, but need not be, related to the physical object of #2.) I will collect this.
