Technology Tips: Using the Iterate Command to Construct Recursive Geometric Sketches

Suzanne R. Harper, Shannon Driskell 

February 2006, Volume 99, Issue 6, Page 442

Abstract:
This month's article introduces readers to an advanced feature of the Geometer's Sketchpad: how to iterate geometric shapes to construct Baravelle spirals and Pythagorean trees. The "Surfing Note" sends readers to a site with applets that will generate fractals such as the Sierpinski gasket or the Koch snowflake.
