Fractals for Darren

Darren Draper dropped by, left a nice comment, and included the observation that the place needed a little fractal beauty to spice it up a bit. This is for you Darr!

  1. I love it!

    I used to do an assignment where my students would take pictures of Geometry concepts. They would then throw the pictures in a PowerPoint. Nothing like the pros do with Flickr ;) but this was before I knew that Flickr even existed.

    Along the lines of fractals, I found that my students always liked to see pictures of digital camouflage - which is a small scale application for fractals. This page is sweet, for example, for showing jets and buildings with and without digital camouflage.

    Amazing stuff.

  2. Oh I do so love it when people start talking fractals :)

    Check out some software I use & a piece of digital story 'questioning' that the kids created here.



  3. Not sure if you saw this yet, but this page is FULL of math:

    Start by showing the kids this new TED talk about calculus and architecture, continue with the satellite images of earth, and WOW!
