Action: Create a growing pattern and then graph your pattern. Explain your pattern rule.

One student chose to use Haiku Deck on the iPad to display their work:


Students created, graphed and explained their growing patterns in partners (a couple of groups also did shrinking patterns). We sorted our work based on what the pattern rule was. Most used growing patterns of 1 or 2 which led to the discussion of try using a different pattern rule for the next activity.

Sorting our work based on pattern rule

During the second activity, this group made a pattern that grew by 5s!

During the second activity, this group made a pattern that grew by 3s and a pattern that grew by 6s!
