Please sign up for snacks for this week’s Fractal Art Show on Thursday, October 17.
In class today, we worked on our fourth and final dimension classwork sheet (while a handful of stragglers turned in their Fractal Art Show designs) and looked at how the analysis we do to find the dimension of the shapes can be used to recreate them in FractaSketch. Neat!
We also have an important reading assignment: By Friday, October 18, please read Mandelbrot’s revolutionary paper that sparked the recognition of fractals and fractal geometry How Long is the Coast of Britain? You might also want to read this version, where Mandelbrot himself explains how he originally wrote this paper as a “Trojan Horse” to introduce his vision of fractal dimension into the scientific community conversation.
