Fractals in the Classroom
Fraboni, Michael; Moller, Trisha
Mathematics Teacher, v102 n3 p197-199 Oct 2008
Fractal geometry offers teachers great flexibility: It can be adapted to the level of the audience or to time constraints. Although easily explained, fractal geometry leads to rich and interesting mathematical complexities. In this article, the authors describe fractal geometry, explain the process of iteration, and provide a sample exercise. Through fractal geometry, students will investigate a range of topics, including sequences, symmetry, ratio and proportion, measurement, and fractions. (Contains 1 figure, 1 table, and a bibliography.)
