Wednesday-Day Three

Day Three - Wednesday

Title/Theme: Application of fractals in computer graphics.

Lecture Topics: Characteristics of fractals and infinity.


  • Continue with the mathematics behind the fractals. Explore the main characteristics of fractals.
  • Design your own fractals by using craft or with the use of GSP, VB, or Java

Learning Goal: 

  • Students will learn about the self-similarity characteristic of fractals.
  • Mandelbrot Set with real and complex parameters.

Activity Details:

  • Lesson on infinity and how it relates to fractals.
  • A hands-on activity with the use of GSP, VB, or Java.

Facilities Required: Computer Lab

Materials: Note pads and pens; Materials for building fractal contest to be determined. But rulers, glue, tapes, and scissors.
