The Koch Snowflake is one of the simples fractals to construct, but yet displays some very interesting mathematical properties. In this video made for Maths Week London, we calculate the perimeter and area of the fractal leading to some rather surprising results…

The first part of the video on perimeter is designed for Key Stage 4 students (14-16 years old), whilst the second part on area is designed for Key Stage 5 students (16-18 years old) and above. All ages should be able to follow the instructions to construct their own Koch snowflake fractal at home.
