Unfortunately my level of maths does not allow me to fully understand fractals.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am at a tenth grade level of mathematics and my understanding of fractals is minimal. Very minimal. After searching the net tirelessly I have realised that any information available to my level of understanding will simply tell me that a fractal is a geometric "shape." Anything more complicated than that is out of my league.

Please, all I need to know is WHAT IS A FRACTAL. Nothing complicated, just a basic explanation.

Thank You.
