#### Fractals, An Inquiry: Day 3

Students develop questions for their inquiries and plan their experiments. They are supported by a modeled case study of Max the Dog's Inquiry Planning Process, as well as supported by a planning template, The Inquiry Organizer.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Geometric Fractals and the Chaos Game

Students define fractals and patterns. They explore how a seemingly random process can result in a pattern. Students practice probability and fractions skills by playing the chaos game online.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Introduction to Fractals: Infinity, Self-Similarity and Recursion.

This instructional activity introduces high schoolers to the ideas involved in understanding fractals. They develop a sense of infinity, self-similarity and recursion and

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Fun With Fractals

Students use fractals to analyze nature. In this geometry instructional activity, students work in groups using technology and math to communicate. They identify where in the real world fractal can be seen.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### The Sierpinski Triangle

Students investigate the Sierpinski triangle. In this geometry lesson plan, students define fractal curves and its relationship to triangles. They identify repeating sequences and relate it to fractals.

#### Fractals and the Chaos Game

Students explore the concept of fractals. In this fractals lesson, students play the "Chaos Game" via an applet. Students place dots on the screen to recognize that they have created Sierpinski's Triangle.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### The Mandelbrot Set

Students explore the concept of Mandelbrot sets and Julia sets. In this Mandelbrot and Julia set activity, students use a function integrator applet to investigate two-variable function iterations. Students use Julia set and Mandelbrot...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Fractals

Learners explore the concept of fractals. For this fractal lesson, students use applets to explore Koch's Snowflake, Sierpinski's Triangle, and other fractals. Learners develop these concepts through exploration and teacher guided...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Fractals, An Inquiry

Students observe and discuss several different fractal drawings and relate them to patterns they see in nature. They use an online fractal tool to create and modify a fractal image and then create their own fractal image with paint.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Introduction To Fractals: an Inquiry

Students evaluate a playful case study about a dog searching for fetching sticks to identify the steps in the science inquiry method. They read the case study and fill in a worksheet with the examples of questions, observations and...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Finding Patterns in Fractals

Students discover patterns and sequences. They use a website to explore patterns and fractals. Students share their discovery of fractals and their patterns with the class. They develop a list of patterns used in everyday life.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Getting Familiar with Fractals

Pupils use the Internet to answer lab questions about fractals, and then construct fractals using the initial stage and iteration rule. They complete tables and generate rules for the "nth" term and create their own fractals.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### The Mandelbrot Set

Students are introduced to the notion of a complex number and function iteration in order to motivate the discussion of Julia sets and the Mandelbrot set.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Why Study Fractals?

High schoolers explore the concept of fractals. In this fractals lesson, students use the website to research where fractals occur in nature. High schoolers research what fractals are and how fractals are used to solve real world...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Patterns in Fractals

Students explore the concept of fractal patterns. For this fractal pattern lesson, students use an applet about the Hilbert Curve to answer questions about rectangles and other polygons. Students derive the fractal pattern when dividing...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Irregular Fractals

Students explore the concept of irregular fractals. In this irregular fractals lesson, students discuss how to find fractal dimensions through teacher led discussion. Students calculate fractal dimensions of various fractals.
