Students will enjoy using pattern blocks to investigate and extend various repeating patterns, and to create their own patterns.
Extending patterns to find eg the 10th term can be done physically but for the 100th term students have to apply their problem solving skills to develop then explain their rules.
Additional support is provided through the Teacher Notes and Answers.
The resource includes Extra Practice for students to make the all-important transition from the concrete (hands on) to symbolic representations.
This is Chapter 4 of five chapters covering Measurement, Fractions, Geometry, Patterns, and Transformations.
All the Pattern Block chapters as well as our other resources are available in my store at www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Math-By-Jim-At-Root-7.
Pattern Blocks are not included but a free Pattern Blocks template can be downloaded in our Free Section.
