Description: An Internet Adventure into Cancer, Pattern Recognition & Image Analysis, and Geometry. Cancer is a group of diseases in which some body cells change their nature, start to divide uncontrollably, and may revert to an undifferentiated type. This lesson explores the ratio that designates a cancerous cell (perimeter squared to area), through Java applets and files to download. By James P. Dildine, with consultation from Howard A. Silver.
