Description:

This set of lessons guides students in the making of the Sierpinski Triangle, Jurassic Park fractal, and Koch Snowflake, both with paper and pencil, and with Java applets. Accompanying articles, written for children, explain the properties of fractals (self-similarity, fractional dimension, formation by iteration) and answer the questions "Why study fractals? What's so hot about fractals, anyway?"
