Hi Alyssa,

I'm not exactly sure what you meant by the tools needed for fractals. In my
geometry classes, the students use compass and straightedge, or The Geometer's
Sketchpad to construct fractals. Sketchpad is a great way to create fractals,
because the students can write a script using loops to do the repetitive
actions.

I have some geometry web pages with information and examples of fractals and how
to construct them. I hope these pages are helpful to you:

then go to http://www.punahou.edu/acad/sanders/mathart/MACch1geo.html  

. . . scroll down the page and you will find step-by-step instructions for
the Sierpinski fractal.

Aloha from Hawaii,
Cathi
