Fractals: Sierpinski’s Triangle
Students divide equilateral triangles over and over to create a Sierpinski Triangle.

- Students learn to create their own Sierpinski Triangle by starting with an equilateral triangle.
- Then, they create Sierpinski Carpets by starting with a square.
- Finally, they experiment with three-dimensional versions, perhaps creating a Menger Sponge using Lego or in Minecraft.
