Summer Math Fun – Fractal Triangle #GiftedMath

In anticpation of the release of the movie Gifted next week we have been sharing some fun Math tricks. This movie is a great story of a man that really goes the distance for his niece who is truly gifted in her abilities.

Today is the third day in the activities that we have been sharing. Yesterday, was Minute Math activity and on Tuesday we shared a Multiplation Hack that was handy! Today it is about getting Fractal.

This is a fractal triangle. By repeating the triangle pattern at different scales within the larger shape, a complex

Gifted comes out to BlueRay July 25th!

Frank Adler (Chris Evans) is a single man dedicated to raising his spirited young niece, Mary (Mckenna Grace), a child prodigy. But Franks and Mary’s happy life together is threatened when Mary’s mathematical abilities come to the attention of her overbearing grandmother (Lindsay Duncan) – who has other plans for the girl. You’ll love every moment of this “deeply satisfying” (Edward Douglas, Film Journal International) film, also starring Jenny Slate and OSCAR Winner Octavia Spencer.
