The Pizza Problem: A Solution with Sequences
Shafer, Kathryn G.; Mast, Caleb J.
Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, v14 n3 p176-181 Oct 2008
This article addresses the issues of coaching and assessing. A preservice middle school teacher's unique solution to the Pizza problem was not what the professor expected. The student's solution strategy, based on sequences and a reinvention of Pascal's triangle, is explained in detail. (Contains 8 figures.)
