Hilbert Curve

Objective: In this activity, students step through the generation of a Hilbert curve, a popular fractal. Students should be introduced to the idea of self-similarity as well as begin creating a working definition of fractals.

Materials: Each student will need

Explorations questions for students:

  1. Does this fractal look like a solid?

  2. What is happening to the fractal after each step?
