#### Human Tree: Dilations

Look at dilations exponentially. Using a fractal from a museum exhibit, the installment from the Math at the Core: Ratios series introduces the term dilation. The presenter points out that dilations can make images either smaller or...

Lesson Planet

#### Human Tree: Ratios

Create a personal tree. By visiting an exhibit at the National Museum of Mathematics, the resource introduces the idea of fractals. The exhibit takes an image of the person and creates a tree by repeating scaled images on the shoulders...

#### To Explore Strange New Worlds

It's time to boldly go where your class has not gone before! The introductory lesson in a five-part series takes young oceanographers aboard the NOAA Ship Okeanos to begin a study of ocean exploration. The lesson includes a comparison of...

Lesson Planet

#### Exponential Growth: Exponential, Fractal Snowflakes

Examine an exponential growth model. Using a fractal, learners calculate the perimeters of each stage. When comparing the consecutive perimeters, a pattern emerges. They use the pattern to build an equation and make conclusions.

Lesson Planet

#### Cut It Out

Explore the mathematics of the paper snowflake! During the five lessons progressing in complexity from K through 12, pupils use spatial geometry to make predictions. Scholars consider a folded piece of paper with shapes cut out. They...

#### Authentic Activities for Connecting Mathematics to the Real World

Check out the handout from a presentation that contains a collection of high school algebra projects connecting a variety of mathematics to the real world. Activities range from simple probabilities to calculus. The activities can be...

Lesson Planet

#### Fabulous Fractals

Learners view a video to discover how patterns in nature relate to math. They explore the concept of exponential growth by observing and creating fractals. They solve and design word problems.

Lesson Planet

#### Pascal's Triangle

Students explore the concept of Pascal's Triangle. In this Pascal's Triangle lesson, students use an applet called 'Coloring Multiples' to explore Pascal's Triangle. Students develop patterns starting with various numbers in Pascal's...

#### Fractals Teachers' Notes

When you see a flower or a tree in nature do you see the math? This web resource contains many ideas for using fractals in a math class including Sierpinski’s triangle, Koch's Snowflake, and the Jurassic Park Fractal. Additionally, it...

Lesson Planet

#### Pyramid in The Desert

Students investigate the Sierpinski triangle and calculate the ratio and area of the triangle. In this fractals lesson, students calculate parts of a Sierpincki triangle. They use Google Earth to help them construct the different parts...

Lesson Planet

#### Creating Fractals Using Transformations

Sixth graders define what a fractal is and experiment with patterns. In this fractals lesson, 6th graders create fractals in a word processor by using right triangles. Students rotate, shrink and reflect their designs.

Lesson Planet

#### Using Cabri Geometry to Create Fractals

Learners construct the Sierpinski Triangle using Cabri Jr. They use a step-by-step guide to construct the Sierpinski Triangle on their graphing calculator and then discuss the formula for constructing a nth stage Sierpinski Triangle.
