Collatz Conjecture + Unit Circle
I was inspired by this page to write my own Collatz Conjecture visualizer. My first build yielded something very close to what I saw in the Numberphile video, however, I felt there might be a more meaningful way to visualize the path of each number on its way to 1 rather than clumping everything into a bundle of seaweed. My solution was to create 360 "branches", each representing a 1-degree turn on a unit circle. Spreading the branches out in this way and animating the growth process gave me a much better sense of how stopping-times compare between numbers 1-360.
