End of the World

Solving this pyramid puzzle is a great way for students to have an interactive experience with predicting patterns. After reading a short history of "The Tower of Hanoi," students simulate the puzzle with stacks of coins to find the minimum number of moves required. They can then apply this pattern to a puzzle of 64 discs, later solving for "n" number of discs. An additional challenge question introduces the concept of time into the puzzle.
