Unit Overview: Reasoning with patterns and sequences

Lessons:

10 lessons

Number sequences (Part 1)

In this lesson, we will learn to identify sequences - whether they are increasing or decreasing. We will also learn the rule to get from one term to the next, and continue the sequence. We will then look at sequences with missing terms, for example with the first term missing, and consider how they can be completed by using the inverse.

Identifying patterns

In this lesson, we will further develop our understanding of patterns in number and the rules to follow to get from one term to the next. We will also describe the patterns with reference to what calculations need to be done to find the missing terms.

To develop strategies to plan and solve problems (Part 2)

In this lesson, we will explore a series of shapes which grow in size. We will spot the patterns and explore them so that we can make a general statement about the rules of this pattern. Using the general rules we have discovered, we will be able to find out the number of shapes needed for any term in the sequence. We will also learn how to investigate the patterns logically.
