Pages 589–592 Workshop Papers


This workshop for Bridges participants will explore mathematical topics related to undergraduate geometry embodied in the Sierpinski tetrahedron. Come prepared to create a Stage 2 or 3 Sierpinski tetrahedron. Participants will be able to decide how best to structure and tailor the assembly and display process. There will be a variety of choices in terms of paper weight and designs. All materials provided.
