For the remainder of this semester you should be working on your final project. We’ll do this in three stages.

Final Project Experimentation — Create several quick and dirty sketches that implement the beginnings or seeds of an idea.

Final Project Proposal — develop a plan and proposal.

Final Project — Build the final project and present in class!
For your week 10 homework, you should be on step #2 with a little bit of #3 thrown in. I’m also including some exercise ideas related to fractals below.

Fractals

Build a fractal structure with physics. For each with make a fractal tree where branch of the tree is two toxiclibs particles connected with a spring. How can you get the tree to stand up and not fall down?

Use an Lsystem as a set of instructions for creating objects stored in an ArrayList. Use trigonometry and vector math to perform the rotations instead of matrix transformations (much like in the Koch curve example).
