2.2 - Dimension of "Non-Fractals"

HandsOn Activities:

7. Circle Measurement of Dimension

We have been
measuring the non-integer dimension of coastlines. The shape of a coastline
is called a *fractal*. Non-fractal objects have integer dimensions. For
example, a line is 1-dimensional. A non-crumpled piece of paper is 2-dimensional.
A cube is 3-dimensional, as shown in Figure 2.6.
