Mathematics is all about patterns. Young mathematicians analyze geometric patterns to write algebraic expressions. They use the expressions to predict future stages of the patterns.
Fifth graders use a software program to practice their problem solving skills. As a class, they identify patterns in their days at school and review problem solving patterns in math. They solve different problems and discover that the...
Fifth graders duplicate patterns, guess pattern results and identify the symmetries created. They are given an instructional handout, 5th graders replicate the patterns demonstrated by folding the paper and punching the appropriate...
Fourth graders investigate the concept of geometric patterning. They create their own patterns with a few basic requirements. The patterns must illustrate the concepts of flipping, 90 and 180 degree rotations. The collages also consist...
Kids Can Have Fun
Engage youngsters in exploring the wonderful world of shapes with this series of cut-and-paste activities. Offering a variety of materials from printable pattern blocks to a series of matching exercises, this resource will have your...
Facilitate creativity in your math class as individuals learn the definition of a geometric reflection and correctly construct a model, as well as its reflected image. They use a perpendicular bisector and circles to elaborate on...
Fibonacci is an interesting sequence that forms some unique patterns. Learners explore sequences that do not have the typical arithmetic and geometric patterns. They identify the pattern and find the next consecutive terms....
Playing with matches (unlit, of course) becomes an engaging learning experience in this fun instructional unit. Teach pupils how to apply properties of exponential functions to solve problems. They differentiate between quadratic and...
Eighth graders explore sequences. They discuss the difference between an arithmetic sequence and a geometric pattern. Students participate in workstation activities where they determine arithmetic or geometric patterns and predict the...
So many shapes in our vast oceans. Young explorers can discover new shapes in a variety of ways in this lesson. One way is having free exploration with a pattern shape kit handed out by the teacher. Another is by viewing a video, Ocean...
Kids learn about the beautiful design work called Rangoli. Rangoli is a symbolic, geometric design drawn on the floor in Indian homes intended as a welcome to gods and guests alike. They'll learn about the tradition, view examples of the...
In this sequencing instructional activity, students examine a pattern made of circles and squares. They draw the next pattern in the sequence. They tell how many circles will be in the fifth pattern, and how many squares will be in the...
Sixth graders explore the use of shapes to create geometric patterns. they start with a simple example of dividing shapes in half to create two new ones. This can be extended to creating intricate patterns.
Author Faith Ringgold uses quilts to illustrate her books Tar Beach and Aunt Harriet's Underground Railroad. In this integrated trio of activities, young scholars read stories, identify and create patterns, and design quilt squares of...

Future mathematicians learn about arithmetic and geometric sequences, as well as common ratios and differences as they complete a worksheet matching sequences with the algebraic expressions that represent them.
Discover the prevalence of geometric design in Islamic culture with this wonderful informational video. It begins with an overview of the complexity of designs dating back to the eighth century during early Islam, and then delves into...
Scholars find a pattern from a geometric sequence and write the formula for extending it. The instructional activity includes a table to complete plus four analysis questions. It concludes with instructional implications for the teacher.
Mathematics Vision Project
Natural human interest in patterns and algebraic study of function notation are linked in this introductory unit on the properties of sequences. Once presented with a pattern or situation, the class works through how to justify...
It's your birthday! But, maybe other people's, too. An illuminating video describes how to apply geometric probability distributions in real-world situations. It then reveals how probability helps explain the birthday paradox.
Mathematics Assessment Project
After completing an assessment task where they express numbers as the difference of squares (i.e., 9 = 5^2 – 4^2), class members note any patterns that they see in the problems.
Help your students to identify even and odd numbers. In this number sense instructional activity, they read the book Madeline and use counters to identify which number has a "partner." Learners write down odd and even numbers on a...
Probability is all about patterns and rules. An instructive video explores the tenets of probability. It starts with basic probability, moves on to compound probability, and explores the addition and multiplication rules for probability.
