Fractal Tool

Fractal Tool

This applet lets students explore connections among geometry, measurement and number patterns. Students select one of four preset fractal processes, including the Koch snowflake and the Sierpinski triangle, and observe the stages of complexity. The number of parts and an area or linear measure are shown in a table. The tool supports the lesson How Many Triangles Can You Construct? in the unit Building with Triangles (cataloged separately).
