Just like functions are the basis of algebra, the tower in this activity has a base connecting the drawing to an algebraic equation. Can your mathematicians spot the pattern of this tower and other hypothetical towers by creating a function rule? The last test is to see if they can go backward when given the total amount of bricks in the tower to find the base.
- Open-ended thinking allows for discussion
- Good entry into writing functions
