In the At Right Angles October 2021 webinar, Dr. Shashidhar Jagadeeshan and Dr. Shailesh Shirali discussed The Rascal Triangle, referencing a 2016 article of the same title by Ishaan Magon, Maya Reddy, Rishabh Suresh and Shashidhar Jagadeeshan. The speakers elaborated on methods that students had discovered for finding a particular entry in the triangle and stressed the value of allowing students to explore and enjoy mathematics. While the webinar also explored many other interesting problems, I would like to share a few additional ideas about the fascinating Rascal Triangle.
