Snowflakes, starflakes, and swirlflakes, oh my!

Eight minutes before the bell rings?*

Lest your older students are feeling too cool for paper snowflakes, this latest from Vi Hart is for them.

Plunk down a stack of paper and a pile of scissors.

Start the video.

Tell everyone to keep up and produce at least one snowflake by the end.

Go!

*Eight minutes, because scissors, paper, and eyeballs will be jumping all over the place trying to keep up, so you might as well plan to show this twice.

[Vi Hart, professional mathemusician at the Khan Academy]
