- The Helix Summer Science Institutes: Discover Mathematics behind Fractals Summer Course, July 2015
Course Description: Fractals are everywhere. You can find them in our lungs, kidneys, and blood vessels, flowers, plant, trees, terrain, rhythm of the heart, clouds, mountains, in the wilderness of nature. Today, fractals are used in medical research, in the movies, wireless communications, biology, computer graphics and games. In this course, students will learn about the fascinating concept of fractals, discover the mathematics behind them, and write iterative algorithms to create breathtaking computer graphics by using fractals. Students will be presented with background and mathematical foundations used in creating different types of fractals. Lectures will be interactive and lead to very interesting hands-on exercises that involve knowledge of Math and Computer Science. Major topics include Calculus, Geometry, Algebra and Transformations, 3D graphics, and Computer Programming.
