Dear All,

I had found the following intriguing story on the website of the MAA:

http://www.maa.org/pubs/cmj_nov10-Rascal.html.

The article is the story behind a recent article "The Rascal Triangle"
in the College Mathematics Journal. The article was written by
three middle school students, one in America, one in Canada, and
one in Indonesia. The rascal triangle is a simpler version of
the Pascal triangle. This webpage does contain a pdf copy of their
published article.

It is quite an accomplishment for middle school students to make a new
mathematics discovery and to publish it. This article is an excellent
example of student creativity in mathematics and is yet another good
example that shows that mathematics offers good challenges and
opportunities for creativity from students at any level.
