Title: Flash Fractal Maker
Url: https://www.maa.org/press/periodicals/loci/resources/flash-fractal-mak...
Creator: Gries, Daniel
Publisher: Mathematical Association of America
Description: While some may know fractals primarily from their use in abstract painting and African art, fractals are important elements within the world of mathematics. For those who seek to learn more about the construction of fractals and their uses, this very nice Flash-enabled feature from Daniel Gries at Merrimack College will definitely come in handy. This particular Flash applet draws fractals by means of a recursive algorithm, using a simple "generator" that users draw in the space that it is provided. Before using the application, users may wish read the overview offered online, and also take the time to read the instructions thoroughly.
