I'm going to be out on Thursday and Friday for #nctm11, so not getting done what I wanted to today changes my plans. Originally, I was going to do this:
Mon: Mathematical Induction
Weds: Binomial Theorem
Thurs/Fri: Review all (plus sequences) for quiz next week

it's from a subway station in Portland. Random.
Now what I'm thinking is this:
Tues: Mathematical Induction
Thurs/Friday: Exploration into Pascal's Triangle
This new version will probably be more fun for the kids (hopefully). I'm going to give them some stuff about the history and patterns in Pascal's Triangle for Thursday then the application of it (expansion of binomials, combinations) on Friday. I think this'll work.
When I decided to do this during my plan bell 2nd period today, I checked out my links on diigo as a starting point (they're here if you're interested). It's so nice to have resources available!
