I thought I've seen it all until I stumbled upon Nathan Shields blog (www.10minutemath.com). Mr.Smith has outdone himself, well at least I think so, with the following fractal pancakes. They look too good to eat (mathematically delicious). I thinks its amazing how he is able to connect such an art form to math and the real world. His creative talent with these stunning fractal art works gives us a way to explore the visualization of mathematics:

(www.10minutemath.com)A Sierpinski triangle is a fractal, a structure that displays selfsimilarity at various scales. This fractal is created by recursively removing triangular pieces from the structure indefinitely  of course, the pancake isn't very hearty if you really do this, but you get the idea. To see about making your own fractal pancakes, as well as other topics I find interesting as a math teacher, check out my blog.  Nathan Shields (www.10minutemath.com) 
"Pythagorean Tree," a pancake by Nathan Shields (www.10minutemath.com)This fractal, like many others, is fun to doodle at faculty meetings. Here, each triple of touching squares encloses a right triangle in a traditional visualization of the Pythagorean Theorem.

Question: Why is this a mathematical limerick?
( (12 + 144 + 20 + 3 Sqrt[4]) / 7 ) + 5*11 = 9^{2} + 0 .
Answer:
A dozen, a gross, and a score,
plus three times the square root of four, divided by seven, plus five times eleven, is nine squared and not a bit more.
Jon Saxton (math textbook author)

The Math Behind the Fact:
It is fun to mix mathematics with poetry.
