Publisher Comments:

Fractals for the Classroom breaks new ground as it brings an exciting branch of mathematics into the classroom. The book is a collection of independent chapters on the major concepts related to the science and mathematics of fractals. Written at the mathematical level of an advanced secondary student, Fractals for the Classroom includes many fascinating insights for the classroom teacher and integrates illustrations from a wide variety of applications with an enjoyable text to help bring the concepts alive and make them understandable to the average reader. This book will have a tremendous impact upon teachers, students, and the mathematics education of the general public. With the forthcoming companion materials, including four books on strategic classroom activities and lessons with interactive computer software, this package will be unparalleled.

Book News Annotation:

Not a textbook, and not just for the classroom, this book which comes in two parts, is a collection of largely independent chapters on the major concepts related to the science and mathematics of fractals, chaos, and dynamics, presented at the mathematical level of an advanced secondary school student. A wide range of illustrations (including 14 color plates) are integrated with an enjoyable text, bringing the concepts alive and making them understandable to a large audience.
