New Review Alice in Fractalland
Take your class on a field trip to Fractalland where they'll learn all about number and shape patterns. Based on Disney's movie Alice in Wonderland, this resource takes young mathematicians on an adventure as they explore patterns in math including Pascal's Triangle, the Fibonacci Sequence, Mandelbrot's fractals and much more.
4th - 8th Math 10 Views 9 Downloads CCSS: Adaptable
RAISE - Rural Alliance for Improving Science Education has put together an incredible lesson on fractals. Examples using Mandelbrot Sets, Sierpinski's Triangle and Koch's Snowflake are discussed with activities for each. There is a worksheet in which measurements are made on a segment of a river using 3 different scales.

What are Fractals?
Middle and high schoolers identify and analyze fractals and research information using the Internet to locate information about them. They look at fractals in relation to nature and other real world situations. Pupils create several types of fractals using various methods on grid paper and poster paper.

Big Fleas Have Little Fleas
A benthic habitat hosts a vast collection of organisms and its structure influences the biodiversity. Middle-school marine biology explorers will discuss how corals impact structure, and therefore diversity, on the ocean floor. They draw Sierpinski triangles and then work together to construct a model of a benthic habitat with the same structure.

Fractal Fraction Fun
Students discover the interesting patterns and shapes referred to as "fractals." In this geometry lesson, students utilize pieces of colored construction paper to create the branches of a fractal tree. Students discuss the rules and shapes that must be used in order to create a legitimate fractal.
