This applet features finding remainders using Pascal's triangle. This applet
seems quite appropriate for a lesson using modular numbers.
It's nice to be able to expand the triangle as much as you wish. What the user
finds is that the divisor given will indicate the number of colors (remainders)
available.
Modular numbers are not covered in depth in elementary school. It could help
some with pattern development, but outside of a number game, this applet may not
be very useful to a large population of users.
