Sierpinski Triangles Investigation
This resource, from the Royal Institution, provides students with the opportunity to explore patterns in mathematics. The activity begins by considering observed patterns in number sequences and progresses to the concept of fractals, which is introduced to students through playing 'the chaos game'. Students construct a Sierpinski triangle by drawing in progressively smaller triangles and study the pattern of odd and even numbers in Pascal's triangle. The resource includes guidance for teachers, which provides an overview of the activities, a presentation and a template.
