Lesson 6 - Multiple Number Patterns


To encourage students to have fun on the Web while learning about Multiple Number Patterns, here are some games and interactive activities they can do on their own or in pairs.   After having some time to experiment have the students record the algorithms and a description of the pattern it creates on the hundreds chart. For students who need reinforcement these patterns can be duplicated on a hundreds chart at their desks using on the algorithm and description they recorded.



Extend, and describe special number patterns.
