Sources For Information About FractalsDate: 16 Feb 1995 07:27:53 -0500 From: Maxine Fuentes Subject: fractals I am a 9th grader and would like to learn about fractals. Where should I look? Thank you for being there to answer our questions. Tina Comissiong Date: 20 Feb 1995 23:11:17 -0500 From: Dr. Ken Subject: Re: fractals Hello there! I went digging through our library's on-line catalog, and I found a bunch of books about fractals. Here are some that I thought might offer a good introduction. I've never actually taken a look at any of these books, so I can't be sure that any of them are any good, but it may be a start! Good luck. AUTHOR McGuire, Michael (Michael D.)
