Pascal Triangle Applet
Library Home || Full Table of Contents || Library Help
|An applet that graphically presents Pascal's triangle modulo an integer number p; i.e. it computes the binomial coefficients. It can draw triangles with up to 650 rows with a p value between 2 and 30,000 (though it's not very clear above 15,000). The resulting pictures are very beautiful and may be good graphical illustrations for the binomial theorem and the laws of division of natural numbers. Some theoretical material and links are included.|
