                 CHISENBOP TUTORIAL - Andy Harris

        http://klingon.cs.iupui.edu/~aharris/chis/chis.html

   Andy Harris, a computer science instructor for Indiana
   University/Purdue University - Indianapolis (IUPUI),
   originally wrote the Chisenbop tutorial to compare this
   finger arithmetic method with the way computers do
   calculations.

   His Streaming Media Lessons, which require the free Real
   Media player, begin here:

     - Counting

             SNOW CRYSTALS - Kenneth G. Libbrecht

       http://www.its.caltech.edu/~atomic/snowcrystals/

   This site is all about snow crystals and snowflakes, and how
   these remarkably complex and beautiful structures appear,
   quite literally, out of thin air. The many facets of snow
   crystals are described in these sections:

     - Natural Snowflakes
     - Designer Snowflakes
     - Snow Crystal FAQs

                            \|/

                  CRYSTALS - S. Alejandre

   Students studying polyhedra enjoy seeing the structures as
   they occur in the real world.

     - Crystallography
     - Systems of Crystals
     - Paper Nets
