Two-Variable Function Pump Exploration Questions

For Students 11th - 12th
Guiding students through two variable (complex) functions, this worksheet helps them perform complex arithmetic on 6 expressions. They iterate several functions with given starting points, determining whether each is a prisoner, escapee,...

Day #8 - Fractals

For Teachers 9th - 12th
Learners explore fractals and draw fractal curves. To assist in remembering the methods, they sing a song about fractals, watch a video, and create images of fractals on dot paper. Students observe and discuss a comic strip about...

Fractals, An Inquiry: Day 5

For Teachers 6th - 8th
Students explore the process and criteria for generating an effective report of their inquiries into fractals.They are provided with multiple report options for expressing their knowledge of the inquiry process.
Lesson Planet

The Mandelbrot Set

For Teachers 7th - 12th
Students explore the Mandelbrot Set. They are introduced to the concept of a complex number and function in order to motivate the discussion of Julia and Mandelbrot sets. Students investigate fractals and how they are built.

Fractals

For Teachers 9th - 10th
Young scholars discuss and explore what fractals are and some different properties that they hold. They then build a simple fractal of their own in order to reinforce those concepts.
Lesson Planet

Irregular Fractals

For Teachers 6th - 8th
Students study and research irregular fractals and construct a few based on their research. Students practice pattern recognition skills and plane geometry skills calculating dimensions on the Fractured Pictures activity.

Finding Patterns Using Fractals

For Teachers 6th
Sixth graders are introduced to patterns in fractals. After a lecture/demo, 6th graders go to the computer lab, access a website imbedded in this plan and practice making patterns with fractals.

Patterns In Fractals

For Teachers 6th - 8th
Middle schoolers find number patterns in the generation of several different types of fractals.
Lesson Planet

Properties of Fractals

For Teachers All
Students build a working definition of regular fractal, look carefully at the concepts of dimension and scale, and are introduced to logarithms. They solve simple exponential equations for the exponent both by trial and error and using...
