Develop an understanding of algebraic sequences through an exploration of patterns. Five leveled problems target grade levels from elementary through high school. Each problem asks young mathematicians to recognize a geometric pattern. Initially, learners simply describe the patterns and then progess to writing arithmetic and geometric sequence equations.
