In this activity, students can zoom in on the Mandelbrot set and Julia sets for different C-values. At any point, students can choose to switch from the Mandelbrot to Julia set and vice versa. This activity allows students to explore fractals and how the Mandelbrot set and Julia sets are related. This activity includes supplemental materials, including background information about fractals, a description of how to use the application, and exploration questions for use with the java applet.
