Transformational Geometry and Iteration in Cornrow Hairstyles

The Center for Cultural Design presents this page on cornrow hairstyles and how they apply to the mathematical concepts of transformational geometry and iteration. The site includes the cultural history of cornrows, as well as explaining how these shapes can demonstrate geometrical concepts. An interactive applet is included with which students can create their own cornrow pattern.
