This page creates randomly-generated snowflakes. Click "new.flake" to see one flake at a time. Click "lots.of.snowflakes" to see many different snowflakes being created (one at a time). Click on "show.variables" to see what angles and lengths were chosen by the computer for each random snowflake. (It is fun to try to guess the angles before you peek.) Click on "lacy.snowflakes" to go to a page with a different method for drawing random snowflakes using 12 turtles at one time. Click on "" to go to a page where you can see many snowflakes falling from the sky and can control their speed with a slider.
