This magic expanding chelonian is turning out to be even more fun than I expected.... although it is kind of sad what a math teacher does for kicks on Saturday night...

I'm guessing the promised 600% growth in 72 hours will be by area - or maybe even by volume. I'm getting scared ....

  1. Interesting study Nordin, will you be asking for your $2 back if you only get 590% growth? Anyone remember those toys you put in the oven and they grew to 500% of their size?

    The research article below does a similar thing to photos of turtles, looking at the size of the hexagons on their shell etc.
