Pascal coloring and modular math

Pascal'sImagesIn this activity students have the opportunity to color as they investigate Pascal's triangle and the many useful patterns that it shows. The triangle is explored for patterns, coloring results, and motivation to learn more about modular arithmetic (clock math).

Two more Pascal's Triangle activities:

Pascal's Triangle and Probability - When there are too many combinations of possible outcomes, Pascal's triangle can help students figure out the probability of each outcome.

Pascal's Triangle and the Binomial Expansion - (X + 4)8 is hard to simplify ... unless you know how to use Pascal's Triangle to shorten your work.
