This activity by The Math Forum presents a surprising fact hidden in Pascal's Triangle. Students create a "flower" by coloring the six numbers surrounding a given number in the triangle. Multiplying alternating "petals" results in a surprise product. Students are asked to look at prime factorizations in order to better understand what is happening. In addition to exploring an interesting problem, students get some good practice with multiplication, factoring, and prime numbers.
