In this function tables worksheet, students complete the first set of function tables and then use the function tables in the second set of problems to find the value of y for the given value of x. Students complete two word problems and finish with two test prep questions using algebra patterns and functions.
In this pattern activity, pupils cut and paste pictures to complete patterns given in rows. Worksheet has a reference web site for additional activities.
In this St. Patrick's Day pattern activity instructional activity, 1st graders cut out pictures of a rainbow, a leprechaun, a clover and a pot of gold. They glue the pictures at the end of a sequence of pictures to complete the pattern in 2 examples.
First graders create patterns using Kidspiration software. In this computer technology lesson, 1st graders use the Kidspiration program to finish patterns. Students drag the shape to the correct pattern. Students then complete a pattern on their own.
Students analyze how repeating patterns are generated. Using the interactive computer applet, students create, compare, and contrast units of two squares. They predict how patterns with different colors will appear when repeated in a grid.
First graders create patterns,explore and describe connecting patterns and extend their patterns using a sequence of sounds and shapes.
Students create and explore more complex patterns such as "growing patterns," which are related to but different from "repeating patterns." Students generalize, analyze, and describe growing patterns using connecting cubes.
Fourth graders use inductive reasoning to find algebraic patterns in geometric figures. They use technology (i.e., calculators, computers) and manipulatives to discover number patterns involving geometric concepts. They solve concrete and real world problems involving geometric concepts using patterns and functions.
Students design delicious patterns in this math activity. In this early childhood math lesson, students develop math, observation, problem solving, and fine motor skills.
Learners search for and generalize an algebraic pattern. They make and analyze a coordinate graph.
Students engage in an activity that exposes them to the process of learning a foreign language. The cognitive steps a learner goes through is taught. The basic word forms of the language are discussed.
In this pattern activity, students draw shapes that are missing in a set of 6 rows of patterns. Worksheet has a reference web site for additional activities.
Fifth graders explore patterns. In groups, 5th graders participate in a "Pasta Pattern" activity. Given a bag of pasta, classmates sort pasta by shapes. They use pasta pieces to model different patterns. Students complete a bean pattern activity.
In this function tables worksheet, students review the different ways to represent a function which include using a function table and an equation. Students then copy and complete each function table in the first set. In the second set, students use the function table to find the value of y for the given value of x and finish with one word problem.
Students comprehend that ratios and fractions are interchangeable. They compare ratios using common denominators, cross multiplication, and intuition. Students find equivalent fractions. They comprehend that equivalent ratios do not equate to equivalent mass. Students make play dough in groups. Each group is assigned a different ratio of flour to water.
Students investigate the concept of using proportions to compare quantities while also practicing calculations for foreign exchange rates. They develop the skill of solving for unknown quantities of money while using an algebraic equation.
In this patterns and functions worksheet, students review using a function table or equations to solve problems. Students then copy and complete each function table.
In this St. Patrick's Day pattern worksheet, students analyze 2 pattern sequences of St. Patrick's Day symbols. Students decide what would come next in each and cut and paste the next pictures that would follow in the sequence.
Students analyze problem solving techniques for equations with variables by playing a game called "Smackdown". They place variable cards on a grid and use the area model to calculate an answer after spinning a game piece to determine the variable values. The player with the largest equation value is the winner of the round.
Students discover patterns in linear equations by playing a dice game to collect data. They graph the data and analyze the patterns of the lines created by the data. The class then compares the individual graphs to evaluate the position of the y-intercept when x=0.
