Day 7 September 1!

Today was day 4 of the Week of Inspirational Math – Pascal’s Triangle. The video was great, talking about Fibonacci Numbers, where they are in nature and the Mona Lisa and Darth Vader’s helmet. It also talked about why most snowflakes have hexagonal patterns. The activity was on Pascal’s triangle. You should do it.

For homework the kids have to do number visuals for the numbers 13-24, using the same initial number visuals they did for the numbers 1-12.  Another totally engaging day!
