The Smithville Families (Probability)

Students review Pascal's Triangle by completing and discussing the entries of the first eight rows. They determine the total number of possible girl/boy combinations in a five-child family. Pupils investigate the number and make-up different five-child families that could be born in a town called Smithville. Students use a coin to simulate the births of different children.
