The ”Grade 7 Patterning” activity packet is aligned with the Ontario Mathematics curriculum. The expectations this packet addresses are as follows:
Represent linear growing patterns, using a variety of tools and strategies;
Make predictions about linear growing patterns, through investigation with concrete materials;
Develop and represent the general term of a linear growing pattern, using algebraic expressions involving one operation;
Compare pattern rules that generate a pattern by adding or subtracting a constant, or multiplying or dividing by a constant to get the next term with pattern rules that use the term number to describe the general term.
This packet is intended to meet the above expectations. There are several activities per expectation. There is also a unit introduction quiz so that you can see the knowledge students are entering the Patterning unit with. An unit end test is also provided so you can see if students have met the above expectations.
