Exploring Discrete Mathematics Summary

Project is Ready!
This week the subgroups completed their work. Our project involving Plinko, Lattice Paths, and Pascal's Triangle is now ready to be used in classrooms. We hope that as our project is used teachers will comment and give suggestions for improvement.
We still had time on our last day so we investigated the problem of finding a pair of six-sided dice that are numbered differently than the standard dice, but still have the same outcomes and distribution. It was a fun activity with a nice tie in to factoring polynomials.
