Working with Pascal’s Triangle offers some interesting and varied mathematics. We love to color and the end results are prettier than most math homeworks. Here is the second of 3 activities using Pascal’s coloring.
Pascal’s Triangle and Probability – This activity could be used to explore the probability of coin tossing results. When the combinations get too complicated to list, students can use the numbers in Pascal’s Triangle.
CCSS: 7.SP.C, HSS.CP.A, HSA.APR.C.5
If you wish to focus only on the coloring and Pascal’s Triangle, you might use this Hexagonal grid paper. Hexagon-grid.pdf
For members we have editable documents and solutions.
For another application of Pascal’s Triangle see our previously post on Pascal’s Triangle and the Binomial Expansion.
