Title: Hopping madly off in random directions

Abstract: Imagine hopping on a path either to the left or right (randomly) but with each hop halfway to the end. Your position at any moment is random, but there is some order to the overall trajectory. In this talk we will imagine this and other variations and explore what we can say about the structure that emerges. Surprisingly, there is often an intricate "fractal" pattern that manifests from the randomness.
