Draw the Koch Curve!
1. Take a line, horizontal and straight. Split it into 3 equal 3 inch parts, and take out the middle segment. Replace it with an equilateral triangle, and make sure each side is 3 in. long. Your curve should now look like what is shown below. Note that with the pictures on this page, the segments are not 3 in. long. They are smaller-size pictures.
2. Each time you go through that loop, or calculation, is 1 iteration. Now, repeat the process again, but do it to all the new lines you have. If you are stuck, refer to the picture below.
3. Do the same process as many more times as you wish. If you repeat the process 4 times, it may look like the image below.
