Fractal Skewed Web


	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.

Warning!

	Clicking on the answer before you do the construction
will  spoil the great satisfaction of discovery and spoil the 
surprise.
