Supermutations

A supermutation is a number that contains all the possible permutations of a set of digits. For instance, 123121321 contains all the possible permutations of 1, 2, and 3 (123, 132, 213, 231, 312, and 321). This video is an interesting exploration of permutations, beyond what we’re doing in class.
