Blaise Pascal

16bbeda3-bdd9-3f87-99a3-29cf85593965According to Special Days in June,   the 19th is Blaise Pascal’s birthday (1623).  Somehow we missed studying about one of the greatest mathematicians and philosphers of all time when we focused on that time in history.  So, we’re going to take a day or two of summer studies to devote to learning about Pascal and his triangle.  You know, that’s one of the many perks with home education – when you discover a gap somewhere, you can fill it right in.

Below are the online resources I found for our Pascal study.
