Freebee Friday Becomes Fractal Friday

Fractal It may be five years old, but Drexel Univeristy’s mathforum’s page on Madelbrodt fractals is an oldie by goodie. It is a must have on any math teacher’s Favorites list and has good information about what a fractal is, a biography of Benoit Mandelbrodt and incredibly beautiful images of a variety of fractals. The guts of the site let you customize these mathematical representations so everyone in the class can get a feel for the effect of the different parameters. It works best with Internet Explorer and the app is a great take-home or in-class assignment.
