Instructions for Use

Sequence Square allows students to choose a starting number and the sequence step, and then count by 2s, 5s and 10s. You can also use an Interactive Whiteboard with this activity.

You will choose a starting number and the sequence step (make this 2, 5 or 10). Then click the “Begin” arrow. You will see all the arrows in the sequence that you set up. Click on the starting number and on the number you think is next. Continue until all the numbers have disappeared and the sequence is complete. Click “Main” to choose another sequence.

Try starting at 3 and counting by 2s, starting at 4 and counting by 5s, and starting at 6 and counting by 10s.
