Pascal’s Triangle

Today we did some problem solving involving the Pascal’s triangle. We used a variety of problem solving strategies to solve the problems:

  • Act out the situation
  • Look for a pattern

We learned about triangular number, tetrahedron numbers and square based numbers.

We then learned ways to work out many real-life scenarios using the Pascal’s triangle. For example choosing a set number of books or balls from a pile. We were blown away!
