Eighth Graders Explore Fractals and Sierpinski’s Triangle
Lauren Ludwig, MS Math
The 8th graders in Ms. Ludwig’s math class explored the abstract concept of recursion. They created beautiful representations of the famous geometric recursive sequence: the Sierpinski sequence. The class discussed the patterns in the triangle, wrote recursive functions, and explored fractals! We then connected the Sierpinski triangle to an activity that we completed at the beginning of the year: Pascal’s Triangle.
