Elaboration on this Achievement Objective

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 spatialsequence. ..., 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.
