PATTERNS So what are Patterns? A pattern is something that repeats over and over again Why must we learn about Patterns? By identifying patterns, we can solve problems Where can we find Patterns? Can we find Patterns around us? Where is this place? Can you see a pattern here? How about this place? Is there a pattern here? I am sure you know this place Are there patterns here? Patterns are all around us Patterns in Nature Are there patterns here? Ahmad was trying to finish all his math homework on Friday. He did 3 questions in the first 15 minutes, then 4 questions in the next 15 minutes, and 6 questions in the next 15 minutes, 9 questions in the next 15 minutes, and so forth. If he continues to work at this rate, how long will he take to finish? This is what we are going to learn today...Looking for a Pattern to solve maths problems Let's look at a BrainPop video on patterns Here's what we are going to do now... 1. In your small groups, I want you to think of one unit of a pattern.

2. It can be a picture pattern, a movement pattern or a sound pattern.

3. Use the paper I have given to you to plan and list out your pattern.

4. Some groups will get to present your patterns.

5. How to present:

A picture pattern: use the visualiser to show it to the class.
A movement or sound pattern: act it out in front of the class.

6. Remember, a pattern repeats over and over again, so present
more than just one unit of your pattern.

Well Done!! Let's use what we have learnt to use... Look at this pattern:

285714285714285714285714285714285...

What is the pattern? What am I suppose to look for? Let's look a maths word problem

The pattern is made up of squares

The 1st pattern has 1 square.
The 2nd pattern has 3 squares.
The 3rd pattern has 5 squares.

How many squares will the 10th pattern have? Let's have some practice
