Binomial Theorem (Part 3)
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.

Binomial Theorem (Part 2)
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.
