October Math Forum Project: Pentaflake

I just posted this month's Math Forum project: The Pentaflake. This is a 2D fractal created from just one simple pentagon. The only SketchUp tools needed to complete the pentaflake are Rotate and Erase - simple and elegant.

When you fill in the missing spaces with faces, you can get some beautiful patterns:

As usual, there is a Student Version which includes a few questions, and a Teacher Version that provides the answers.

It's free - check it out!

PS - I ran across the pentaflake while creating the hexaflake shown below, which is the topic of one of this month's Projects of the Month.

Anyone can design anything in 3D!
