This project is a National Science Foundation sponsored project designed to help secondary school and college teachers of mathematics bring contemporary topics in mathematics (chaos, fractals, dynamics) into the classroom, and to show them how to use technology effectively in this process. At this point, there are a number of Java applets available at this site for use in teaching ideas concerning chaos and fractals. There are also several interactive papers designed to help teachers and students understand the mathematics behind such topics as iteration, fractals, iterated function systems (the chaos game), and the Mandelbrot and Julia sets.

Available at this site:

JAVA Applets for chaos and fractals

The Mandelbrot Set Explorer

Chaos, Fractals, and Tom Stoppard's Play Arcadia


Mathematics Field Days

Dynamic Spreadsheets for Use in Algebra, Geometry, and Calculus

Fractal Movies

Interactive Papers on Dynamical Systems
