Fractals Notes

  1. 1. Fractals
  2. 2. What is a fractal? A fractal is a geometric figure that can be broken down into parts; each part is a reduced-sized copy of the whole. A Fractal Uses the idea of “Self-Similarity” to make its design
  3. 3. Self Similarity In mathematics, an object is self-similar if it is exactly (or approximately) similar to itself In other words, the whole object has the same shape as one or more of its parts.
  4. 4. Self Similarity
  5. 5. Examples of Fractals… The Koch Snowflake - Helge von Koch
