I use this in my Harry Potter 5th Grade Math Unit
at the end of the year as a review. However, it can be used as a stand alone lesson for writing expressions, graphing ordered pairs on a coordinate grid and creating rules based upon the relationship between two numbers.
Common Core 5th Grade Math Standards Covered:
Write simple expressions that record calculations with numbers, and interpret numerical expressions without evaluating them.
I can explain the relationship between corresponding terms in the two numerical patterns.
Form ordered pairs consisting of corresponding terms from the two patterns, and graph the ordered pairs on a coordinate plane.
