Mathematics has its aesthetic beauty as one of the main attractions. There are times geometric patterns arouse the curiosity of many mathematicians. Is this universe Geometry that a subject is gaining more space, it is of Fractals. Working these fantastic structures in high school redeems the importance of showing this beauty in mathematics, in addition, the content is virtually forgotten by schools and almost always overlooked in the development of curricula. In this paper, we propose a brief analysis of the fractal known as Tree of Pythagoras, showing how you can work topics like Arithmetic and Geometric Progressions in order to arouse the curiosity of the student.
