This awesome mathematics teaching tool came in yesterday from Amazon:
Okay, it was a bit hard to hold my Note9 and flip it…but you get the idea!
The Bell curve and standard distribution are obvious, but it also…
Both the Galton Board and the superimposed Pascal’s Triangle incorporate many related mathematical, statistical and probability concepts. Can you spot them all?
In the Galton Board you may see: the Gaussian curve of the normal distribution, or bell-shaped curve; the central limit theorem (the de Moivre-Laplace theorem); the binomial distribution (Bernoulli distribution); regression to the mean; probabilities such as coin flipping and stock market returns; the law of frequency of errors; and what Sir Francis Galton referred to as the “law of unreason.”
With Pascal’s triangle, mathematical properties and patterns are evident. Those include prime numbers; powers of two; Magic 11’s, Hockey Stick Pattern, triangular numbers; square numbers; binary numbers; Fibonacci’s sequence, Catalan numbers; binomial expansion; fractals, Golden Ratio, and Sierpinkski’s Triangle.

Sure, maybe I get too excited by stuff like this…but…come on…it’s pretty cool! 🙂
