What do movie special effects, the stock market, and heart attacks have in common? They are connected by a revolutionary new branch of math called fractals, which changed the way we see the world and opened up a vast new territory to scientific analysis and understanding. Meet the mathematicians who developed fractals from a mere curiosity to an approach that touches nearly every branch of understanding, including the fate of our universe.

I watched Fractals:Hunting the Hidden Dimension with my partner and my 7 year old son. We all enjoyed the program and found the information interesting. However, my son and I in particular were so excited by what we were watching that we had to pause the film a number of times to talk about what we had just been shown. My son grabbed blank pieces of paper after about 15 minutes of the program to start drawing fractals himself. Since watching the film, he and I have been on a number of fractal hunts. It is near impossible to look at a tree ever again without seeing fractals! An excellent program that made learning about math fun, exciting and directly connected to real life.

NOVA: Fractals: Hunting the Hidden Dimen

I was disappointed in it's content. I expected a more scientific presentation on the dynamics of fractals including mathematical and graphical properties. Instead the DVD somewhat hinted towards the applications aspect.

Great for anyone interested in: how science works, how quantum mechanics and religion come together, or what yogis teach us that we really are.

I would hope there will be a second edition, with more research projects using fractals. I obviously is a paradigm in technology.

Comments about PBS NOVA: Fractals: Hunting the Hidden Dimension DVD:

Really like the easy to follow presentation, but it also lends itself to just showing clips in a high school math classroom.

Comments about PBS NOVA: Fractals: Hunting the Hidden Dimension DVD:

This is a simplified discussion of Fractals. I already knew all of this and had hoped for more detailed discussion.
