Description

The package KochSnowflake.m defines a function to draw the Koch snowflake. The Koch snowflake is constructed by starting with an equilateral triangle, then adding to each side of that triangle another equilateral triangle pointing outwards, centered on the edges. The size of these new triangles is 1/3 the size of the current edges.
