ChristMaths tree

Eagles learned about fractals this week: specifically, Sierpinski triangles. We talked in very basic terms about fractals being patterns that repeat at different scales: if you zoom in on a picture of a fractal, you will still see the same pattern repeated. These patterns can be found in math equations, and they can also be found in the world all around us, from snowflakes to the leaves on trees. Santino knew that a fractal has an infinite perimeter!

We replicated a ChristMaths tree the Eagles class of 4 years ago made to take to a Jo Boaler conference at Oxford University, and put our own spin on the finished shape. Mrs Holt made a Koch snowflake (another kind GetFileAttachment.jpgof fractal) to go on top.
