Title: Patterns in Nature
Url: http://polymer.bu.edu/java/
Creator: McGath, Gary
Trunfio, Paul
Publisher: Boston University. Center for Polymer Studies
Description: This page is a companion to the Exploring Patterns in Nature Curriculum Guides (see related pages) developed by the Center for Polymer Studies. It represents several basic Java Applets which illustrate basic concepts in statistical mechanics and fractals. Note that these programs do not necessarily match the software instructions in our curriculum guides. The guides were written to correspond to standalone software developed in the early 1990s. Since Apple Macintosh computers were most popular in schools at the time, we developed for that platform. Those programs were all Mac System 7 compatible and obviously are not OS X compatible. We have plans to breathe new life into these programs and curriculum.
