Coloring Multiples in Pascal's Triangle

This Java applet activity allows the learner to visually identify number patterns in Pascal's triangle as they color multiples of a given number. The user can also click on an auto-color button that will automatically color the multiples of the given number. The number of rows of Pascal's triangle can be increased or decreased. There are separate tabs to access information for the learner, the instructor and to seek help.

      works well; connects to divisibility rules

    • The app works well. A nice way to see the patterns and to practice mental application of the divisibility rules.
