Fractals Final Projects

My fractals  minicourse wrapped up last week, and my students have submitted their final projects. They were created using Tierazon and Apophysis. Here are thumbnails of them:

I’m really proud of their work. We began with very simple IFS fractals, and explored some of the features of Apophysis. Then we learned what complex numbers are, and how they are plotted in the complex plane. Once we understood that, we could define what a Julia Set is, and, finally, define the Mandelbrot Set. That’s a lot of math to cover in three weeks.
