Fractals
What is a fractal?
A fractal is a geometric figure that can be broken down into parts; each part is a
reduced-sized copy of the whole.
A Fractal Uses the idea of “Self-Similarity” to make its design
Self Similarity
In mathematics, an object is self-similar if it is exactly (or approximately) similar to
itself
In other words, the whole object has the same shape as one or more of its parts.
