Fractal Modeling Tools
Fractal Lesson Plans
Lesson plans are available from within the simulations. Select the simulation you are interested in, and then follow the Help/Info link for that simulation.
The Fractal Microscope --
Zoom in on the visually fascinating world of Mandelbrot and Julia sets, explore the algorithms used to create them, and learn about the mathematics behind the cool graphics.
The Snowflake Fractal Generator --
Create your own fractals with this tool that allows you to specify a "drawing rule" that the computer uses to make curves like the famous Koch Snowflake.
Sierpinski Gasket --
A tool for modeling the "Chaos Game', a simple, apparently random process with a not-so-random result. Allows you to change the rules and make your own fractals.
