Essay question: 1-page length
At the time the novel Flatland was written (1884), the concept of dimensions did not yet exist in the public eye. Explain lands, characters, and events in the book that give you a sense of one dimension, two dimensions, three dimensions, and the fourth dimension. (Does a two dimensional world make sense to you? How does the author describe ways that polygons in Flatland can recognize other individuals that can’t be seen with a bird’s eye view?) Describe events where the characters struggle to understand and accept the next dimension.
