This chaos game applet features a game board with the Sierpinski triangle computed down to level 2 with nine smaller triangles. One smaller triangle appears green and is the target. The game requires the student to move a point found on the lower right corner of the Sierpinski triangle to the target's interior. Each move consists of clicking one vertex of the large triangle to move the point half the distance to that vertex. The goal is to get the point to the interior of the target in four moves. The student is challenged to find the algorithm for successfully moving the point to the target's interior in four moves. The applet keeps a record of moves and is playable in progressively harder modes and in several variations. Copyright 2005 Eisenhower National Clearinghouse
