Order to…Chaos / Patterns in …Randomness

A series of resources exploring the seeming chaotic- including two activities looking a fractals.

Really long curves – exploring the notion of increasing the length of a curve and thus introducing the notion of a fractal.

Towards chaos – an explanation of what the colours represent when drawing fractal pictures. There follows a history of the subject and several pictures of the Mandelbrot Set and other fractals.
