Lesson 7: Thanksgiving math

# Thanksgiving turduckenen-duckenen

Forget turducken... I'm stuffing my turkey with two ducks, stuffed with four hens, stuffed with eight quail eggs. Honestly, I do not recommend trying this yourself. So what's your favourite naming scheme: breadth-first, depth-first, or inordered binary tree traversal?

• What is an abacaba pattern?
• An abacabadabacaba pattern is sort of a fractal fraction thing. Vi explanes it more in the Fractal Fractions video.
• i wonder if that tastes good?
• I bet it tastes good. My tumy tum tum started growling when I looked at it.
• At , it shows the egg with the whites still surrounding the yolk. How did she get it to stay together instead of all smushing around? Did she leave it inside of the shells? If so, then how do you eat it?
• You just boil the eggs for, what, i think its somewhere around 20 minutes, until they're hard boiled. Then you run cold water over them and peel off the shells, and then you put them inside your hen. And viola!
• How is this mathematical?
• It is a fractal and can be represented by a binary tree.
The pronunciation is binary tree traversal. (a fun mathy thing too think about.)
• What is a tau?

• At 1:5 what happened?
• she was trying to find ways to say what she was making
• At , why does it sound like multiple people are speaking
• Before , how does Vi Hart make a sort of number tree like that?
