Teaching Module (Iterations, Fractals and Chaos)

Lesson 2

Title: More on Fractals

Objective: To investigate two other typical fractals, the Cantor Middle Thirds and the Snowflake, so as to consolidate the concepts introduced in Lesson 1.

Before the lesson,

  • Prepare one copy of worksheet for each student.
  • Arrange, preferably, one computer with internet connection for each student.
  • Help students recall the concepts introduced in Lesson 1 (e.g. self-similarity and fractional dimensions).

Note: it is highly recommended to use PDF to print the worksheet.
