Growing Patterns and Sequences
Learners explore, discover, compare, and contrast arithmetic and geometric sequences in this collaborative, hands-on activity. They build and analyze growing patterns to distinguish which kind of sequence is represented by a set of data...

Find the 9th Shape for a Geometric Pattern Using a Table
Use geometric shapes to identify patterns and deepen number sense with video four of this nine-part series. Looking at different configurations of square tiles, learners use tables to describe patterns with regard to both the number of...
