The purpose of this lesson is for students to generate two different numerical patterns and then compare the terms in the two patterns. In this lesson, the patterns are the multiples of given whole numbers, starting with 0, and one of the numbers is a multiple of the other. This means that one of the patterns is contained inside the other. For example, the list of multiples of 9 is contained inside the list of multiples of 3 since every third multiple of 3 is a multiple of 9. Students express relationships within a pattern and between 2 patterns using multiplication and division.
- Action and Expression
- Given two rules, generate two numerical patterns. Identify apparent relationships between corresponding terms in the two patterns.
