        Probability: The Smithville Families

        Using this resource group, teachers can focus on the topic of probability by using a simulation involving Pascal's triangle. Students create the number sequences of Pascal's triangle and discover a relationship that this triangle has to theoretical probability. This resource group is part of the Mathline Middle School Math Project.
