In this product, you will find two activities and an assessment to help students analyze patterns, determine rules, and find missing numbers. In the first activity, students match an input output table with a rule. This can be done with glue, paper, and scissors or laminated for a permanent matching/sorting center. The second activity is a set of 10 task posters. Students can work in small groups in timed rotations to work on the problems or independently at their own pace. A short assessment is also included to determine the students progress toward the standard. An answer key is included for the assessment only. You may wish to use this as a pre- and post- assessment. Some two step rules are included for more challenging problems. I hope this helps your students with determining rules and extending tables!
*For your students to be successful, it's best if they already have knowledge of repeating versus growing patterns and number sequences.
