When Alice falls down the rabbit hole, she discovers curious and wonderful mathematics: Pascal's triangle on a colour changing floor, sequences of rabbit generations and beautiful, never-ending fractals. 

This activity comes from the Mathigon website from Philipp Legner in the UK.

Ideas for using this resource
