Patterning

May 6, 2019

from the same drawing of figure 2 we were able to create many different patterns. Some grew by 2 with a constant of 1.

Some grew by 1 with a constant of 3

Some grew by 2 with a constant of 1, but in a different way than before…

We looked at how to know if a pattern is growing linearly, by adding the same thing each time to get to the next term

Or non-linearly by adding different numbers of squares each time. In this case, we look for squares of “n” as well as groups of “n” to determine the equation (which we do lots of in grade 10).

We explored visualpatterns.org and found some patterns quite tricky. This one has a constant that is negative!

We will be looking at patterning and how patterns relate to equations and graphs over the next little while.
