Before doing Investigation 2 and before computing the fractal dimension of the Fractal Skewed Web (Sierpinski Tetrahedron or Sierpinski Arrowhead), do the following experiment for fun! Cut out 30 to 40 equilateral triangles ( 1 inch on each side).Use stiff poster paper of oak tag.Construct the first level (first iteration of the Fractal Skewed Web). What figure must be removed from the original level 0 tetrahedron - as we did with the Menger Sponge.
Clicking on the answer before you do the construction will spoil the great satisfaction of discovery and spoil the surprise.
