Realizing that (X+Y)n can be expanded with the help of Pascal's Triangle offers some pretty and interesting math play. We love to bring a little fun and beauty into our math classes and the end results are neat! Here is the first of 3 activities using Pascal's coloring.
This Binomial expansion activity could be used alone or coupled with our introductory Pascal activity.
