This activity is a great introduction to working with patterns, sequences, or fractals. Having students create the Sierpinski triangle is a great way to motivate "math-shy" students, and provide a visual connection to a pattern of numbers. The triangles also look great hanging around the classroom: use them on the walls, as a border on a bulletin board, or string to create a pennant banner.
