Annie Perkins and Christy Pettis

Poems have different rhyming patterns, depending on which lines rhyme with each other. For example, a two-line poem has only two different rhyming patterns. The two lines below that rhyme with each other can be described as an AA rhyming pattern:

The author guides readers through an investigation of the efficiency of the Euclidean algorithm, leading to a remarkable connection with the Fibonacci numbers.

Fibonacci, Lucas, and the ubiquitous Catalan numbers are delightful sources for experimentation, exploration, and conjecture (Askey 2005; Koshy 2001, 2006, 2008). Pell numbers are another similarly rich source. In this article, I will demonstrate some patterns associated with Pell numbers and then will show how they can be extracted from Pascal and Pascal–like triangles. I will provide a geometric interpretation of Pell numbers and conclude by citing a few opportunities for further exploration.

This article explains how infinite geometric series can be used to calculate areas under graphs of simple power functions, a method first used by Fermat in his work on areas under graphs of parabolas.
