Exploring Fractals in the Classroom

Michael Naylor 

April 1999, Volume 92, Issue 4, Page 360

Abstract:
This article introduces students to fractals, allows them to study the properties of some famous fractals, and encourages them to create their own fractal artwork. Students will learn about iterative processes, exponential functions, limits, writing general formulas, creating and following algorithms, and computing areas and perimeters of increasingly complex figures.
