Math In Nature


What is math in nature?

Trees have their own way of growth.  


We often talk about how math can be found in the world all around us — especially in nature. And trees are no exception!


Did you know that trees are natural fractals? It’s true. As they grow from the ground up, they exhibit similar patterns at increasingly smaller scales. This is a property called “self-similarity” or “expanding symmetry.” 


Isn’t math in nature awesome?
