Explorations with 142857: Connecting the Elementary with the Advanced
Flores, Alfinio
Mathematics Teacher, v101 n6 p418-421 Feb 2008
University mathematics education courses do not always provide the opportunity to make connections between advanced topics and the mathematics taught in middle school or high school. Activities like the ones described in this article invite such connections. Analyzing concrete or particular examples provides a better grasp of abstract concepts. (Contains 8 figures.)
