For Teachers

The Burning Ship fractal is actually a slight modification to the Mandelbrot Set by taking the absolute value of both the real and imaginary parts of the complex number z before squaring it in each iteration.

Thus, the equation is as follows:

z_{{n+1}}=(|\operatorname {Re}\left(z_{n}\right)|+i|\operatorname {Im}\left(z_{n}\right)|)^{2}+c,\quad z_{0}=0

While this may seem like a small change to the equation, the change to the fractal itself is anything but.
