counted units by measuring the sides of the picture with their respective lengths and then multiplied the counted units by the lengths to find the perimeter. In the Koch curve, the number of triangles produced will go infinitely which represents, in the case of complex numbers, the imaginary amount of triangles the Koch curve will make. In the coastline, this shows that the perimeter of coastlines are imaginary as it grows infinitely while in the case of area, the approximate measurement is made making the area finite. C. Explain any difficulties you may have had. I encountered difficulties when creating the Koch snowflake. I had trouble recognizing the patterns between the number of segments, the length of each segment, and the total length in the iterations. I was confused because I was originally trying to count each of the dots to find the total length until I discovered that I was able to multiply the amount of segments times the length of the segments to find it. D. What you learned. I learned about the different types of fractals and their relationship to math and algebra specifically. This helps me understand how complex numbers work because it contains real and imaginary numbers just like the perimeter

of the coastline was imaginary while the area is real. It also helps to see real- life situations and it explains real-life phenomena like the relationship between impedance and voltage of a circuit. I was surprised by what could be considered a fractal, such as mountains, coastlines, and even lightning. I also learned how to measure coastlines and how to make a Koch snowflake.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
