View Resource Culturally-Situated Design Tools

Through the ages, various forms of visual expression have implicitly (and explicitly) drawn on a variety of mathematical principles. The people at the Center for Cultural Design at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute are interested in reaching out to a wide range of people through culturally-situated design tools, so they have created this fine site to do just that. The activities offered on the...

View Resource Curve Family Index (Visual Dictionary of Special Plane Curves)

A discussion of the many ways to classify curves, how they are named, a curve family tree, and interconnection between curves, with related Web sites about fractals and curves. Hosted by the Math Forum.

View Resource African Fractals

The Center for Cultural Design presents this site on African Fractals. Fractals are both visually interesting and mathematically relevant patterns that repeat themselves at different scales. The site includes an interactive applet that helps students understand fractals as applied to geometric concepts. Examples from African culture are included, which makes the site an interesting...

View Resource Flash Fractal Maker

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...

View Resource Chaos and Economics

This site describes Ben Tamari's thoughts on dynamical system in economics, fractals and chaos in nature. The site is divided into six sections: Patterns, Attractors, Economics, Stocks, Form, and Metaphors.
