242- Using Geometric Transformations and Matrices to Create Beautiful Fractals

Friday, November 14, 2014: 12:30 PM-1:30 PM
B15A (Greater Richmond Convention Center)
Lead Speaker:
Maria L. Hernandez

Engage your students with this project that allows them to use powerful mathematics while using their own creative ideas to build fractals. We will explore the mathematical ideas using geometry, trigonometry, and matrices, and we will use a free Java applet to create the fractal images. The project is appropriate for algebra 2 and precalculus students.

Presentation Format: 9-12 Session
