Serendipitous Discovery of Pascal's Triangle
Stanley, Francis W.
Mathematics Teacher, 68, 2, 95-98, Feb 75
An algebra class asked: What is the smallest positive integer that is divisible by each integer less than or equal to ten? Students discovered factorials and a solution. Verifying the solution produced a series of numbers. Successive differences between entries, triangular arrays, and successive quotients finally led to Pascal's triangle. (KM)
