MC27L Lab 3: Fractal Curves (Spring 1997)
Due: April 7, 1997
For this lab, work through all the exercises of section 4.3 in the
text, except that exercise 4.8 is an optional problem you may do if
you have time and interest. As usual, write up a lab report that
explains all of what you did to an audience generally knowledgeable
about Scheme and such, but ignorant of specifically what you did.
Answer all of the questions posed, but do not simply write up your lab
as a sequence of exercises. Instead, try to convey the big picture of
what you accomplished. Remember, there are some tips in the document
entitled ``Suggestions for
clear lab reports in computer science courses.''
One technical tip: if you can't see a fractal with fine details
clearly because it is too small, you can enlarge the image in Scheme
by using the
resize-image procedure, which is built-in to our
Scheme. For example,
(resize-image (line 0 0 1 1) 500) would
give you an image of a line from the center of the image to the
upper-right corner, but it would be much larger than usual.
