GVSU Math Builds Menger Sponge

November 03, 2014

This month around the world, mathematicians joined together to create a giant fractal called the Menger Sponge.  The GVSU Math Department was part of the effort, and dozens of students and faculty contributed to the creation of a "Level 2 Sponge."  The GVSU Menger Sponge was delivered to Calvin College to become part of their "Level 3 Sponge".  See the action at Calvin College, including a picture of their "Level 3 Sponge".
