A week's worth of teaching on the Binomial Theorem. Lesson examples and a plethora of worksheets included. Learners find coefficients of specific terms within binomial expansions using notation of factorials and then apply these skills in using the Binomial Theorem to find solutions to practical applications.
In this video on the Binomial Theorem, Sal tries to give an intuition behind why combinations are part of its definition. By looking at the expansion of (a + b)3 and carefully looking at where each value originates from, one can see how we are really asking a question about combinatorics.
A comprehensive lesson plan that explores and researches Pascal's triangle and relates its properties to the Binomial Theorem through a variety of lessons. Have the class practice expanding polynomials using the theorem. A few other formulas and functions related to this theorem will be explored.
Practice applying the binomial theorem on this worksheet. It contains five multiple choice and five free response problems. The solutions are provided.
Using the binomial theorem and definition of a limit, Sal shows a proof that the derivative of xn equals nxn-1.
In this binomial expansions practice worksheet, high schoolers utilize the theorem to determine the nth term in the expansion for 10 problems, then expand it completely for an additional 6 problems.
In this algebra worksheet, learners identify the coefficient and different terms of a binomial. They use binomial expansion to find their answer. There are 7 questions with an answer key.
In this algebra worksheet, young scholars expand binomials and identify different terms. They expand the function using the binomial theorem. There are forty-four questions with an answer key.
In this Binomial Theorem worksheet, students solve 10 different problems that include applying the Binomial Theorem in each.
Sal shows two ways to quickly calculate the coefficients of a binomial expansion. With the first method, he shows the relationship between PascalÕs triangle and the coefficients, and in the second method, he shows an even faster way for one to write the coefficients without calculating previous rows of coefficients.
