I'm not sure what you mean by little triangle...

An open triangle is used in some jazz charts to indicate a major chord. You might see C(triangle)7 to indicate a major 7th chord.

There's also a solid triangle, point down, placed over notes. That's a dynamic mark called a staccatissimo. It's a light accent - disconnected like staccato, but played with more emphasis.

or do you mean something else?

Note,

For what it's worth I thought the conductor goes down, left, right, up.

Yep, in 4/4 that's what's done. My point is the 'down' stroke is always on beat one, no matter what the time signature... for something complex like 9/8, the conductor goes down-left-left some more-right-right some more- right still more-left-right-up... no matter what the time signature, 'one' is down, and all the others aren't.
