you play the Chaos Game (see below), what famous fractal
does it make?
8 1/2 by 11 in. paper and a pencil
you play the chaos game, you start with a triangle made
of three points. The triangle should take up the entire
2. Draw a
random point anywhere inside or outside of the triangle.
3. Make a
point half-way between one of the 3 points made for the
triangle and the one you randomly drew. This is 1
over using the midpoint you took as your new point. Pick
another point of the triangle and draw the midpoint
as many times as needed. You can guess the fractal after
a while. Download the Chaos
computer program that plays the game. This software runs
on Mac only.
get the real Koch Curve you would need to do an infinite
number of iterations. What is the length of the
real Koch curve, assuming that the starting line
is 1 unit long?
What is the area of the Sierpinski Gasket after 3
iterations? Assume that the original triangle is equal to
1 square unit.
What is the area of the real (infinitely repeated)
Sierpinski Gasket? Assume that the original triangle is
equal to 1 square unit.
