Patterns - Numbers, Shapes, etc.

Curated and Reviewed by Lesson Planet

Find the pattern is the name of the game! Learners examine different patterns represented by numbers, shapes, and words. They must describe the pattern, predict the result in a given position, and find an equation that represents a pattern.

Instructional Ideas
  • Begin with a problem similar to the third example; allow individuals to determine the pattern and try to write an expression to model the pattern
  • Ask each pupil to create a pattern on a notecard, then mix them up and distribute them to the class to solve
Classroom Considerations
  • Builds on previous work with sequences in the two previous lessons in the series
  • The third lesson in a 20-part series
  • Includes a set of practice problems modeled from the lesson
  • Does not include real-life patterns or connections
  • Missing an answer key for the practice problems
