Thomson, Ian
Australian Mathematics Teacher, v73 n2 p29-32 2017
Snowflakes falling in Brisbane, Australia would likely make news headlines during any season of a given year, even during winter. Year 8 students at Ormiston College which is located in Brisbane, have made their own snowflakes--of a kind. Using the programming language Scratch, all Year 8 Mathematics students wrote code to construct Swedish mathematician Helge von Koch's Snowflake Curve.
