Although this was an Art task, our Art teacher (@) allowed my students to code their fractal piece. Check out the Geometry expectations this also covered, besides the Art component.
Grade 8 – Students Will:
- demonstrate an understanding of the geometric properties of quadrilaterals and circles and the applications of geometric properties in the real world;
- represent transformations using the Cartesian coordinate plane, and make connections between transformations and the real world.
Patterning and Algebra also appear in this project. Data is stored in variables and there are multiple repeating patterns.
Let’s not forget creativity, collaboration, communication, critical thinking, challenges, problem solving and inquiry.
And AC/DC was a nice touch.
