Christmas Fractals

Fractals are geometric figures with “self-simularity” – irregular geometric shapes that repeat the irregularity no matter the scale at which you look at them. It is common to see fractals like spirals and branching in nature. Look for repetition of pattern in things like leaves, lightning, seashells and even pineapples!

Fractals can also be created by repeatedly calculating a simple equation over and over thousands of times.

In this video of a recent vPlus Community session, Tom Briggs introduces the world of fractals and teaches you how to use one particular type of fractal to make a maths-inspired popup card in time for Christmas.

Happy Fractaling!
