4434Fractal Geometry
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=80454
This is a glossary of fractals including dozens of examples that are fully explained.Box Dimension
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=80449
Box Dimension is a Java-applet based page that allows students to compute box-counting dimensions for a variety of curves, from lines to classic fractals to real coastlines.Coastline (Mathematics, Fractals)
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=74562
Includes teacher generated activities. A section of the coast line is randomly given an angle (two lines), resulting in a smooth coastline gradually getting rougher and more fractal each click.Iterated Function Systems
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=80455
Iterated Function Systems is a Java applet that allows the user to work with IFS in either a completely graphical setting, or by explicitly entering the parameters that define the IFS.Culturally Situated Design Tools
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=77091
This site makes possible interactive exploration of the mathematics involved in some aspects of African and Native American culture.Leap Fractal
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=74304
chaos game, using linear transformations used to visualize molecular data as wireframe, space-filled, and ball and stick representationsNational Curve Bank
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=83882
A collection of links to sites that discuss famous curves, as well as a wealth of other mathematical topics. Most are a mix of math, history, and computer graphics. Source code is usually available.Paper-Folding Fractals - Constructing the Dragon
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=83285
Paper-Folding-Fractals is Java software and documentation designed to introduce the curious person to fractals. Simple, step-by-step processes of paper folding can give rise to infinite varieties of fractals. In Paper-Folding-Fractals, the user learns what fractals are, how they are created,and can explore the fractal results of paper folding patterns.Sprott's Fractal Gallery
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=84514
This site is a gallery of fractal images of various types and includes MIDI Fractal background music and a Fractal of the Day. Strange attractors, Julia sets, iterated function systems, quadratic map basins, natural fractals, and more.3D Fractals using Biocomplex Dynamics
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=855086
The Tetrabot is the complex generalization of the Mandelbrot set as realized by Dr. Dominic Rochon. His website features a collection of his written academic work about fractals that has appeared in articles, journals, and textbooks. In addition, he provides pictures, news, and other downloads.
