Students learn how to expand binomials using Pascal's Triangle and the Binomial Theorem. Doodle notes are a great way to activate the creative side of the brain while learning material that often just uses the logical side. Hand students a copy of the notes sheet (page 2), break out the colored pencils and gel pens and let the fun begin!
INDEPENDENT TERM OF x IN A BINOMIAL EXPANSION. How to find it? First of all, think what does a term independent of x in Binomial Theorem mean? Got it? Found the clue? Yes, it is the term in which the power of x is 0. You made use of the general term Tr + 1, you collected all the powers of x in the given binomial expansion and, you set the simplified collected powers of x to 27. Great! Now, to find independent term of x, guess what you should do?You must set the power of x to 0.
