Abstract

As a teacher, one is always looking for so-called ‘non-standard’ problems. These should be based on material that has been taught, and yet be neither trivial nor too hard. This article illustrates an example of such a nonstandard problem. Reading the article on the Rascal Triangle [1], I felt it would fit the bill, given that it was discovered by students in the first place.
