Fractals, Graphics and Mathematics Education

Fractals, Graphics and Mathematics Education Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

FractalGeometry is a recent edition to the collection of mathematical tools for describing nature, and is the first to focus on roughness. Fractal geometry also appears in art, music and literature, most often without being consciously included by the artist. Consequently, through this we may uncover connections between the arts and sciences, uncommon for students to see in maths and science classes. This book will appeal to teachers who have wanted to include fractals in their mathematics and science classes, to scientists familiar with fractal geometry who want to teach a course on fractals, and to anyone who thinks general scientific literacy is an issue important enough to warrant new approaches.

Book News Annotation:

In 19 papers from a December 1997 conference at Yale University, teachers mostly of mathematics explain how they teach fractals, in order to help develop a set of common elements by which others may do the same without having to make it up all over each time.
