If you fancy a task that is a little bit different, then look no further than one of Mr Barton Maths rich tasks. This task in particular looks at Pascal's triangle, how it is formed and what patterns students can see within the triangles when they are asked to shade in different multiples. A perfect way to highlight that sequences isn't just sets of numbers.
