Perhaps it’s the last days before winter break and you don’t want to start anything new. Let your students do something different and seasonal by filling in ornaments on Pascal’s tree while searching for number patterns.
This activity is an introduction to the many mathematical properties found in Pascal’s Triangle. Intended for middle school students, Pascal’s Christmas Tree includes these concepts:
• counting numbers
• odd and even numbers
• horizontal and diagonal
• perfect squares
• prime numbers
This activity will familiarize your students with Pascal’s Triangle so that they will be prepared to utilize it in high school math classes when learning of its relationships to probability and polynomial equations.
Included in this product are:
• printable Pascal’s Christmas Tree sheet with bottom row blank for students to fill in, both color and b&w versions
• printable two-page student worksheet
• answer key
Note: This product is essentially the same as my "Exploring Pascal's Triangle,"
with the addition of the Christmas tree look. If you purchased Exploring Pascal's Triangle, you might not want to purchase this one too.
