Discovering Binomial Identities with PascGaloisJE
Evans, Tyler J.
PRIMUS, v18 n4 p361-369 Jul 2008
We describe exercises in which students use PascGaloisJE to formulate conjectures about certain binomial identities which hold when the binomial coefficients are interpreted as elements in the cyclic group Z[subscript p] of integers modulo a prime integer "p". In addition to having an appealing visual component, these exercises are open-ended and expose students to the investigative nature of mathematical discovery. (Contains 3 figures.)
