Pascal's Triangle & the Binomial Theorem 1

A binomial expression is the sum or difference of two terms. For example, x+1 and 3x+2y are both binomial expressions. If we want to raise a binomial expression to a power higher than 2 it is very cumbersome to do this by repeatedly multiplying x+1 or 3x+2y by itself. In this tutorial you will learn how Pascal's triangle can be used to obtain the required result quickly.

Maths EG Teacher Interface

The teacher interface for Maths EG which may be used for computer-aided assessment of maths, stats and numeracy from GCSE to undergraduate level 2. These resources have been made available under a Creative Common licence by Martin Greenhow and Abdulrahman Kamavi, Brunel University. Teachers need to register (top right of screen) and thereafter login to use the system, after which they may use it to compose their own tests by selecting (specifically or randomly) questions from the entire database of questions. Instructions are available from the title page.
