K–1 students team up with Upper Schoolers on fractals project
K–1 students recently helped the Linear Algebra and Advanced Topics class complete an activity on fractals. The specific fractal pictured here is called a Sierpinski Carpet and is a repeating, decreasing pattern of empty central squares. The Linear Algebra students learned how to use matrices to generate and express the fractal analytically, and the K–1 students helped generate the visual, geometric representation. The K–1 students were fantastic, and their amazing coloring skills were on full display as they helped Maya, Lydia, and Avery finish the job!
