Author:Juergen Giesen
Description: This applet performs the following game at varying speeds: Choose a random starting point (o) within the triangle ABC. Roll a die. Connect the point with point A, when you roll 1 or 2; with point B, when you roll 3 or 4; with point C, when you roll 5 or 6; and determine the midpoint of the distance from the original point to the corner indicated. This is the new point from which to continue. Repeat. Does this produce a random pattern of dots? Also available in German.
