A quilter sees a block pattern, while a tiler, a stove backsplash.
A graphic designer wonders what software lead to this image, while a computer program thinks about code.
Are you surprised that I made this with a spreadsheet?
A two-dimensional sequence of numbers leads to this image. I layered a series of triangles on the number pattern. Coloring only odd numbers yields this graphic.
The mathematics behind the triangles within triangles connect to many things. The probability of coin tosses. Fibonacci numbers. The dreaded binomial expansion of Algebra II lore. Things forgotten but can be reforged (the sum of a geometric sequence).
What do you want to create with this pattern?
How would you change it? Download this file (the one on the left), print, and start coloring. Or, download the image (the one on the right) and use a painting application. However, there is something satisfying in doing work of the hands.
