Sierpinski triangle and pyramid

Katarina Ivanović

Sierpinski pyramid is one of the most beautiful structures that allow us to hide mathematics in game and art creation by letting students enjoy in exploring fractals, its patterns and properties. That way they become more interested in rich mathematical explorations and connections. Although the primary school mathematics curriculum is not anticipated with fractals as teaching lesson, it can be very usable in many different domain of elementary school mathematical teaching, such as fractions, area, similarity, and so on. In eight grade, it plays a big role in developing students knowledge of tetrahedron and pyramid properties.
