In this activity we "stitch" patterns by joining points around a regular polygon.
In this activity we "stitch" patterns by joining points around a regular polygon.
Select different values from the menus, or by using the up and down arrows, and see how the pattern changes.
If you think about the points and join numbers using your knowledge of the times tables, you might be able to come up with a way to predict the pattern that results.
If Repeat is selected, the whole cycle is repeated starting on any free pins until no unconnected pins remain.

Curve stitching was invented by Mary Boole—a leading early proponent of the role of fun in maths and science education. Her husband was George Boole, the inventor of Boolean Algebra, which is the mathematics used to describe logic, and to design digital electronics and computer hardware.
