Growing Shape Patterns and Uploading using Google Forms

posted Nov 21, 2016, 3:58 PM by Patrick Johnson
Today students were learning about growing shape patterns and t-charts.

First students were shown the pattern below and were asked what they observed about the pattern. 
* They said they noticed the numbers on the bottom of the pattern as well as the pattern seemed to grow by 1 row or 3 shapes each time.

Next we represented the growing pattern on a t-chart and wrote the pattern rule.

Afterwards students made their own growing patterns and t-charts.

Finally, students used the class iPads to upload a picture of their pattern using the file upload feature of Google Forms.

Below is a photo of all the uploaded patterns. This made it easy to consolidate the lesson by discussing and comparing the growing patterns.
