Mathematical Lens
Mathematical Lens: Math Four You

Douglas Wilcock; Edited by Ron Lancaster and Brigitte Bentele 

February 2014, Volume 107, Issue 6, Page 414

Abstract:
Students analyze a photograph to solve mathematical questions related to the images captured in the photograph. This month, a pyramidal sculpture by the Brazilian artist Saint-Clair Cemin that mimics the fractal known as the Sierpinski triangle prompts questions involving geometric sequences and series, areas, and volume. Pattern recognition is an important aspect of this article.
