The scoring guide below is provided to evaluate the student's performance. Students performing roles 1, 2 and 3 are asked to write a letter to their local newspaper and describe what a fractal is, how fractals are created, and why the public needs to understand fractals. These students will then give a presentation to report their findings. Role 4 will copy and run the calculator program "fractal". This group will give a presentation over the program and demonstrate the program to the class. Role 5 will use the software program to draw pictures of fractals. This group will give a presentation and show their drawings of the fractals. Role 6 will generate their own fractal design. This group will give a presentation and explain the process of the generator they chose to use. There will be a common grade for the group.
