This is a blank template in MS Word to create your own worksheet or board game cards for In and Out tables! There are 8 tables with 3 In boxes, 3 Out boxes, and a rule box. *NOTE-the thumbnail shows two pages but all 8 tables are on one page and have the classic T-chart in and out table!
One way to teach patterns is by using In and Out Tables (function machines). When a number goes IN the table "the machine" follows a rule (an opperation) before sending it back OUT to create a new number.
EX: 2 goes in and 4 comes out. The rule could be + 2 or x 2.
