##### The Dynamical Systems and Technology Project at Boston University
Zooming Sierpinski 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.
##### JAVA Applets for chaos and fractals
Play the chaos game; explore iterated function systems; and make fractal movies, like the Dancing Triangles and Zooming Sierpinski above, all at your own computer. These applets are now up and running!
##### The Mandelbrot Set Explorer
This is an interactive site designed to teach the mathematics behind the Mandelbrot and Julia sets. It consists of a series of tours in which you will discover some of the incredibly interesting and beautiful mathematics behind these images. The site is designed to be used by readers of

##### Law and Disorder
The New Science of Chaos
By R.C.L

Chapter Six of Laws of Wisdom
For more on Fractals and Chaos visit the School of Wisdom's Fractal Webs.

The outer world can often seem as chaotic as our inner world - our stream of consciousness. Coherence can all too easily elude us. We usually experience a convoluted flow of happenings and events. The fragmented, fractal nature of everyday reality, and people, is one of our basic problems. To use thinking to sort things out - to start making sense of it all - we must first find the basic structure to reality. The structure reveals the order underneath the chaos.
The Four Attractors
We have seen the fourfold nature of consciousness; the laws concerning the four functions and four brain waves. An equivalent fourfold law applies in the material world. This was recently discovered by scientists working in the new field of Chaos. They found that seemingly-chaotic, lawless actions in the outer world actually followed a hidden order. The order they discovered was fourfold. They found that all outer phenomena are governed by what they call the four "attractors". The attractors are forces which bring order out of disorder. They are called the point attractor, the cycle or circuit attractor, the torus attractor and the strange attractor. The attractors are in accord with the four functions: torus-sensing; cycle-thinking; point-feeling and strange-willing. They form a basic Constitutional Law of the outer world of nature.

6. Classroom Activities
Classroom activities. As mentioned in the introduction, most of mathematical phenomena such as chaos, fractals, and bifurcations. ideas you are probably trying to teach anyway.
http://www.gettysburg.edu/~jfink/vanworkshop/classact.html
##### Classroom Activities
As mentioned in the introduction, most of the ideas discussed here have been presented to high school students in mathematics clubs, in summer workshops, and in the classroom itself. The experiences have been quite positive. Iteration is the key to many ideas in dynamical systems, and students are able to grasp the concept quite easily. Working only with x + c for real and complex values of c , students can be exposed to contemporary mathematical phenomena such as chaos, fractals, and bifurcations. If you are reluctant to deal with complex numbers and prefer to work only with real numbers, students can still understand and compute orbits and draw time-series plots and histograms. They can also do something we didn't have time to covernamely, orbit and bifurcation diagrams. Those ideas are covered in the programs Lab 2 - Plot and Analyze and Lab 3 - Orbit Diagram . We can look at them, if you're interested. Also, the ideas in last summer's workshop using the program Lab 4 - Fractals are accessible to students at all levels. This material can occupy students for several weeks.

##### Robert L. Devaney
A native of Methuen, Massachusetts, Professor Robert L. Devaney is currently Professor of Mathematics at Boston University. He received his BA from Holy Cross College in Worcester, MA in 1969 and his PhD from the University of California at Berkeley in 1973 under the direction of Stephen Smale. (Click here for his complete "mathematical" genealogy.) He taught at Northwestern University, Tufts University, and the University of Maryland before coming to BU in 1980. His main area of research is dynamical systems, primarily complex analytic dynamics, but also including Hamiltonian systems, planar mappings, and computer experiments in dynamics. Lately, he has become intrigued with the incredibly rich topological aspects of dynamics, including such things as indecomposable continua and Cantor bouquets. He is the author of over seventy research papers in these fields. He is also the author or editor of ten books on various aspects of dynamical systems theory. These include " An Introduction to Chaotic Dynamical Systems ," a text for advanced undergraduate and graduate students in Mathematics and researchers in other fields; "
