Common Core State Standards:
4.OA.5 Generate a number or shape pattern that follows a given rule. Identify apparent features of the pattern that were not explicit in a rule itself.
· Pattern (number or shape)
· Pattern rule
In this unit, students will apply their understanding of patterns with numbers and shapes from previous grades. In addition, this unit builds upon students’ understanding of multiples and factors in order for students to see the patterns and form a rule.
Students will build on their understanding of multiples, factors, and geometry to make sense of patterns. They are expected to use a variety of models to support their reasoning about numbers.
· Function Table (vertical table/t-chart)
· Number Line
