Using a Table to Find the Rule for a Geometric Triangle Pattern

This Using a Table to Find the Rule for a Geometric Triangle Pattern video also includes:

Continue building pattern recognition skills with the sixth video in this nine-part series. Looking at different arrangements of triangles, tables are used to identify and extend patterns. Teach young mathematicians that when working with geometric patterns, it is important to pay attention to the number of pieces, the types of shapes, and the organization. Consider providing pattern blocks for pupils to use as they follow along with the lesson, allowing them to create and explain their own patterns as an extension.
