View Resource Fractal Fun

This page, created by the Goudreau Museum of the Mathematics in Art and Science, provides a tool to draw and customize fractals. The fractals available are the fern, the gingerbread man, the Sirpinski Set, and the Mandelbrot Set. This is a great resource for instructors looking for an interactive activity that introduces fractals to their students.

View Resource Nonlinear Geoscience: Fractals

This site, from the Earth Monitoring Station at the University of North Carolina, provides an examination of self-similarity and fractals in geoscience. The generation of artificial fractals, fractal dimensions and definitions, and fractal geometry are explained. The site also contains examples such as river basins, coastlines, and lightening that exhibit fractal characteristics.

View Resource Ruth Charney on Modeling with Cubes

The Mathematical Association of America (MAA) continues to build on their already solid online presence with the addition of this lecture by noted mathematician and scholar Professor Ruth Charney. This particular lecture was given at the MAA's Carriage House Conference Center in the fall of 2008 and it deals with how cubes can be used to represent a variety of systems. As Charney notes, "The...

View Resource Mathematical Brooding over an Egg

André Heck is a project manager at the Faculty of Science of the Universiteit van Amsterdam, and he recently contributed this thoughtful article to the "Loci" project at the Mathematical Sciences Digital Library. In this piece, Heck explores the topic of mathematical modeling by asking, "What is the volume and surface area of a hen's egg?". The article goes on to discuss how mathematical ...

View Resource Fractal Geometry

This is a web site, created by Michael Frame, Benoit Mandelbrot, and Nial Neger of Yale University, to support a first course in fractal geometry for students without a strong mathematical background. It covers a wide range of topics in fractals, modern dynamics, and chaos. Each of the topics contains examples of fractals in the arts, humanities, or social sciences. The site also contains lesson...
