This National Strategies Study Plus unit has been designed to cover a number of areas of mathematics, particularly work with number and algebra. It also addresses a range of learning styles along with links to literacy and ICT through the use of spreadsheets.
Using the topic of fractals, studnets explore the patterns and sequences generated from the perimeters and areas of the von Koch Snowflake. The unit includes work on adding and multiplying fractions. The iterative sequence for the areas involves proportional change and students are guided towards using multiplicative relationships with a single multiplier.
This work is then extended into looking at other sequences, functions and graphs.
