Another famous pattern, Pascal’s triangle, is easy to construct and explore on spreadsheets. Create a formula for any cell that adds the two cells in a row (horizontal) above it. This pattern is like Fibonacci’s in that both are the addition of two cells, but Pascal’s is spatially different and produces extraordinary results. Pascal’’ triangle is related to an amazing variety of mathematics, things like Fibonacci’s sequences, the triangular numbers, the powers of 2, the binomial theorem, the Bell curve, and more, so much more. We invite you to explore!
