The Sierpinski Triangle

The juniors in Ms. Honeycutt’s Geometry class did an interesting project that everyone enjoyed. The juniors used a piece of regular paper and a piece of construction paper to make geometric 3-D works of art.  The hands-on project was an easy way to learn about the principal of the Sierpinski Triangle. The Sierpinski Triangle is said to be strictly self-similar, which means that any of its parts, no matter where they are located or what size the part is, contains a figure that is similar to the whole. The project was a fun way to get the class to enjoy the lesson, and see exactly how the lesson worked.
