Mehmet Çağlar COŞAR, Cenk KEŞAN

Abstract


Completing the missing steps of fractal patterns whose some steps were given and explaining the reasons of the answers were expected from the students within the interview questions. By deeply analyzing the answers of the students, it is aimed to investigate thinking manners about patterns are in fractal shapes. Due to the data that was obtained from the interviews, strong relationship was deduced between the students’ knowledge about properties of self similarity and iteration of fractal shapes and their success about realizing of relationship between the steps of fractal patterns.

Keywords: Fractal Pattern, 8th grade students, Thinking manner, fractal geometry.
