Mentor: It is related to that. However, iteration and recursion describe the process of repeating
steps. Self-similarity is a property of the object, not of the steps used to build the object.
Think of it this way: When we look at stage 2 of the
Hilbert Curve, we can find a copy of stage 1:
This copy is a smaller scale version of the original. We can find this in the
Koch's Snowflake , too:
Can you find self-similarity in the other fractals?
