Description:

In this activity, students step through stages of making a fractal known as Sierpinski's triangle. This activity allows students to explore fractals and different generators for fractals. The activity can also be used to introduce the concepts of limit and infinity. This activity includes supplemental materials, including background information about the topics covered, a description of how to use the application, and exploration questions for use with the java applet.

CCSS.Math.Content.8.G.A.4: Common Core State Standards for Mathematics

Understand that a two-dimensional figure is similar to another if the second can be obtained from the first by a sequence of rotations, reflections, translations, and dilations; given two similar two-dimensional figures, describe a sequence that exhibits the similarity between them.

CCSS.Math.Content.HSG-SRT.A.2: Common Core State Standards for Mathematics

Given two figures, use the definition of similarity in terms of similarity transformations to decide if they are similar; explain using similarity transformations the meaning of similarity for triangles as the equality of all corresponding pairs of angles and the proportionality of all corresponding pairs of sides.
