Using Matrices to Create Beautiful Fractals

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Together we will explore an engaging precalculus project in which students use trigonometry, transformations, matrices and their imaginations to create beautiful fractal images. I will demonstrate how to use a free tool available on the web to create our fractals, and I will share sample student work and reflections on the project.
