The Fractal Geometry of Mathematics Classrooms: Navigating Classroom Environments in Factory-Model Schools
Abstract / Synopsis
Mathematics education has a diverse and complex history. After decades of national reform, mathematics classrooms today are still in desperate need of change. This article examines the current state of factory-model schooling through the lens of Mandelbrot's The Fractal Geometry of Nature in order to rethink pedagogic practices.
