Thats OK - here are the missing tweets, pasted in with the links - which I hope will now work AS LINKS.

look at the
Geometry Garret http://schoengeometry.com/ Benoit Mandelbrot appears

explore some growth (or decay?) at various levels? http://mathworld.wolfram.com/NestedPolygon.html

do a short mathematical magic trick? www.cs4fn.org/magic

could your students explore the Art of Spirolaterals? http://bitartworks.com/spirols01/spdesc00.htm

Apologies for missing these. It was very difficult going through the Twitter chat so unless it jumped out as a link I must say I missed above . Sorry !! Thanks for correcting.

The Twitter chat on Tuesday was very interesting. But some of my tweets during the chat are not included in the record above. Therefore the resources to which I linked in my disappeared tweets are also not in the Word file that RJS2212 has compiled (see comment above).

In my six lost tweets I gave links to:

Websites

http://schoengeometry.com/

http://bitartworks.com/spirols01/spdesc00.htm

http://mathworld.wolfram.com/NestedPolygon.html

http://www.natedog.com/cards/faro.html

Short film

Books

The Colossal Book of Mathematics by Martin Gardner

Here is a link to my summary of the Twitter chat with website links and books, ideas etc grouped together as I thought it easier than reading through the wholechat again. https://www.ncetm.org.uk/files/15928920/Maths+CPD+Twitter.docx
