In Week 1, students in Order from Chaos Central Study jumped into the deep end, exploring the weird, wonderful and highly mathematical world of fractals through the lens of arithmetic and geometric sequences and series.

After starting with simple and compound interest, students quickly jumped into the world of fractals, including the von Koch Snowflake and the Sierpinski triangle. Students were asked to make conjectures and mathematically explain and justify their reasoning. Students were challenged as at times fractals show properties that can be challenging to understand.

Across the focussed week on this task students were able to make strategic choices about their learning, using time, space, peers and teachers.

Ask your student to share their Folio, there is some amazing work out there!
