One more chance to sign up for snacks for tomorrow’s Fractal Art Show!
In class today, we finished up the dimension classwork sheet and practiced how the segments of each fractal design that you measure to calculate its dimension can be used to recreate the fractal in FractaSketch (aka “stealing the template”). 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.
