Tilings of a (2 x n) Checkerboard with Squares and Dominoes

Mathematics
About the Scholar: Pioneer Scholar Rana is from Istanbul, Turkey, where she attended Robert College The Research: Rana’s paper investigated unknown number sequences, constructing models to make them easily understandable. She shows that the combinatorial arguments used to construct models of the Lucas sequence can prove the identities and visual lengths of lesser known sequences. […]
