Fractals - some links for exploring
- Dear Art Educators,Earlier today I posted that Google was all decked out in Fractals - I neglected to tell you that if you click on Google - you will be taken to images of Fractals. Ken Schwab was intrigued about them so asked a question to Getty list.This is what I have on file for Fractals.Read What are fractals:
(Jan HIllmer sent this first one, too)
Welcome to Fractal World - you will be introduced to the mysterious world of fractal geometry. "Fractal World" is a web page created as a project for Mr. Gordon's Honor's Algebra 2 class at Lock Haven High School (Keystone Central School District). The author of this page is Erick Hanson.

A fractal is a rough or fragmented geometric shape that can be subdivided in parts, each of which is (at least approximately) a reduced-size copy of the whole. Fractals are generally self-similar and independent of scale. A fractal is any pattern that reveals greater complexity as it is enlarged. Thus, fractals graphically portray the notion of 'worlds within worlds'
