n Learning and Teaching Mathematics - Fractals in the mathematics classroom : the case of infinite geometric series

Volume 2016, Issue 20

The world of mathematics is constantly evolving. However, the mathematics included in school curricula seldom reflects this evolving nature of the discipline. Appreciating the importance of exposing students to contemporary mathematics, we identified fractal geometry as a topic that could meaningfully be integrated into the regular curriculum. In this article we briefly introduce the idea of fractals and demonstrate how they can be integrated into the teaching of infinite geometric series.
