One of my favorite Youtube Channels is Numberphile. They are one of the driving forces behind my newfound interest in maths. In a recent video they shed some light onto a sequence of numbers called Recamán’s Sequence.
The amazing part here was the visualization that they developed for Recamán’s sequence: A beautiful pattern of semicircles that result from tracing the sequence’s jumps on a number line.
In this tutorial we’ll generate Recamán’s sequence and then visualize it using VEX only.
