* Pascal’s Triangle* is more than a triangular shape of numbers. The patterns found within the triangle are

*FASCINATING*! This week’s Math Minute will have you investigating some of the treasures found within the triangle.

**How can I spend my Math Minutes this week?**

**How can I spend my Math Minutes this week?**

- Watch this video about Pascal’s Triangle: https://youtu.be/YUqHdxxdbyM
- Post a comment describing a pattern you notice within the triangle
- What numbers would be in the next row?

- At 1:20 in the video, the Triangular Numbers are highlighted. The picture below shows the first 5 triangular numbers. Draw the next 2 triangular numbers using paper and pencil or the Drawing Pad app on your iPad. Send the image to the EY Coordinator in your building.
- At 1:58 in the video, the Pentagonal Numbers are highlighted. The picture below shows the first 5 pentagonal numbers. Draw the next 2 pentagonal numbers using paper and pencil or the Drawing Pad app on your iPad. Send the image to to the EY Coordinator in your building.

- Do some research on Pascal’s Triangle. Create a tutorial using Explain Everything. Don’t feel like you have to explain everything about the triangle, just pick a couple patterns to highlight. Send your completed Explain Everything to the EY Coordinator at your building.
- This TED Ed Video takes the explanation of Pascal’s Triangle to a higher level, but it’s worth a watch to discover even more patterns within the triangle. Post a comment about something new you learned. When posting a comment, include your first name, your grade, and school (i.e. Trevor, 4, Sunset).
- Who created Pascal’s Triangle? Do a little research and post a comment below. Include the website or resource you used to find the information.

Ones are on the outside of the triangle and it also goes like 10 10 5 5 4 4

Yes Dominic, ones are on the outside, but where did you get the 10, 10, 5, 5, and 4, 4?

I can now do the Pascal’s triangle easy

What did you learn about Pascal’s Triangle? Can you tell me the numbers in Row 10?

The tenth row is 1,10,45,120,210,252,210,120,45,10,1

I see now you do ones on the outside and then 12345678910 on the first inside. Then just add in triangles until you get on the tenth row 1 10 45 120 210 252 210 120 45 10 1

The triangle is so sophisticated. What would it be used for?

DON’T READ THIS IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO KNOW WHAT THE TENTH ROW IS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Row 10 is: 1, 10, 45, 120, 210, 252, 210, 45, 10, 1

I learned that Pascal’s Triangle holds about ten different patterns…maybe more!

I learned that the Pascal’s triangle is very useful.

The math triangles are cool. I didn’t notice the numbers in order down the triangle until they showed it.

The Pascal Triangles are harder than they look, but I can still do them.

Wow that’s complicated but I think I got it the tenth row is 1,10,45120,210,252,210,45,10,1

The triangle is going by what the numbers add up to.
