du Sautoy describes how fractal geometry can be used to describe natural
objects, and how it is used in digital animation. Trees use the simple rule of
trying to maximize surface area, and this is something that can be simulated
mathematically to give a very realistic result. Mandelbrot explored this
fractal property of infinite complexity in his work, which was then taken up by
a digital animator to create extremely life-like surfaces in his films. Teacher notes: Use as an enrichment clip during a series of lessons on shape or
symmetry, or during lessons on pattern and following rules. Students can then
be asked to explore other fractals, and find animations of them. They could
also work to produce patterns based on the Sierpinski triangle.1 a15-17. aAvailable on the Internet.
