Fractals and Patterns

Eleventh graders build upon simple pictoral representations to study about more elaborate patterns. These types of patterns are called fractals. The teacher gives and introduction on self similarity, fractal dimension, and iteration. Then the students create their own fractal and a rule for it using the triangular grid paper. They can use the PowerPoint as a learning tool and guide for their own fractal patterns.

As a first year teacher, Lesson Planet is a precious lifeline! I am able to gather ideas and build on the ideas of veteran teachers. Lesson Planet is a huge time saver, especially for a first year teacher who is trying very diligently not to become overwhelmed!
