Section 2.1 Question 21 | ||
Make a Sierpinski Triangle, or check out the links to other fractals. ( http://math.rice.edu/~lanius/fractals/ ) |
||
Section 2.1 Question 21 | ||
This site provides a rather advanced explanation of the theory behind the Sierpinski Triangle (which this site calls the Sierpinski sieve). Scroll down to view the formulas, and follow the links to the wide variety of related math terms and concepts. ( http://mathworld.wolfram.com/SierpinskiSieve.html ) |
||
Section 2.1 Question 21 | ||
Construct your own Sierpinski Triangle using the applet provided, or let the Serendip software do it for you. There are also links to interesting sites on fractals, and to a Chaos game. ( http://serendip.brynmawr.edu/playground/sierpinski.html ) |
||
Section 2.1 Question 21 | ||
This Java applet also draws a triangular Sierpinski Gasket. ( http://www.jamesh.id.au/fractals/ifs/triangle.html ) |
||
Section 2.1 Question 27 distance calculator | ||
Find the distance between two cities anywhere in the world, measured in kilometres, miles, and nautical miles. Or input the longitude and latitude of any two points on Earth and find the surface distance between them. ( http://www.wcrl.ars.usda.gov/cec/java/lat-long.htm ) |
||
Section 2.1 Question 27 distance calculator | ||
Select your “to” and “from” locations from a list of hundreds of cities around the world. This application shows you their coordinates and locations on a map and on a satellite image, as well as calculating the distance between them and the bearing. ( http://www.mapcrow.info/ ) |
||
Section 2.1 Question 27 distance calculator | ||
Find the distance between any two major cities around the world, as well as their longitude and latitude. This site also provides a satellite image of Earth showing the shortest path between the two locations. ( http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/distance.html ) |
||
Section 2.2 Question 18 Koch snowflake | ||
This site provides a rather advanced explanation of the theory behind the Koch snowflake. Scroll down to view the formulas, and follow the links to the wide variety of related math terms and concepts. ( mathworld.wolfram.com/KochSnowflake.html ) |
||
Section 2.2 Question 18 Koch snowflake | ||
This multi-coloured diagram shows the first four iterations of the Koch snowflake very clearly. Also provided is an explanation of the seemingly paradoxical properties of the Koch snowflake. ( http://scidiv.bcc.ctc.edu/Math/Snowflake.html ) |
||
Section 2.2 Question 18 Koch snowflake | ||
Select the Learner tab for a step-by-step explanation of how Koch’s snowflake is formed. Then go to the Activity tab to create a Koch snowflake of your own using the applet. ( http://www.shodor.org/interactivate/activities/KochSnowflake/ ) |
||
Section 2.2 Question 18 Koch snowflake | ||
This Koch snowflake site has simple, clear instructions and diagrams on constructing the snowflake, as well as links to other math-related sites. ( http://math.rice.edu/~lanius/frac/koch.html ) |
||
Section 3.2 Making Connections generating golden triangles and spirals | ||
