This activity is perfect for any Algebra class. It combines practice solving Multi-Step Equations
of one variable with learning about the man who is famous for discovering fractals, Gaston Julia
. Fractals are based on algebraic equations and use many, many steps to generate the computer images we see today.
Students solve 16 equations for the variable. After determining the answer, they cut out the accompanying puzzle piece, and glue it onto the matching value on the blank puzzle. When all sixteen are done, the puzzle is completed, and a picture of a Julia Set fractal is complete. Self- checking!
There is also a mini Web Quest
on the life of Gaston Julia included in the resource. A link to a web site is given which will provide the answers.
Though the fractals look best in color, a black and white version
of the puzzle is also included. If you want to check your students' work I have included a student response sheet with room for them to show steps. Answer key included.
Math, Art, History – all in one resource!! And self-checking, too.
