NA1-6: Create and continue sequential patterns.
This means the students will explore sequential patterns. A sequential pattern is one in which further members of that pattern can be predicted from previous members. So ..., and 1, 3, 5, 7, ... are sequential patterns. At Level One students should be able to reproduce a given pattern using objects, drawings or symbols and continue the pattern on with justification. (It goes square, circle, star...) They should also be able to invent their own patterns and communicate the “rule” for their pattern to others.
- Continue a skip-counting pattern.
- Describe skip-counting patterns.
- Use graphs to illustrate skip-counting patterns.
identify and continue a repeating number pattern (1, 3, 5, 7,...)
- "Read" a repeating pattern and predict what may come next.
- Create a repeating pattern with two elements.
- Create a repeating pattern with three elements.
- Describe patterns.
- Continue patterns.
- Create patterns.
- Record patterns on grid paper.
- Make predictions about ‘missing’ sections of a pattern.
- Use words to describe linear patterns.
- Continue a sequential pattern.
- Systematically count to establish rules for sequential patterns.
- Skip count in 2s, 5s and 3s.
- Students will be able to explain the idea of doubling in measurement (measure it and then add/count on the same number of units to get the new measurement)
- Students will be able to measure an object in non-standard units and find “twice” or “double” by counting.
