4.4 Growing Patterns (2011/2012)

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

To create this pattern I used clear red counters. In my first figure, I placed one red counter. In the second, I placed one on top and then one on the right. I followed that by placing a second one on top and a second one on the right when I made figure three. For figure four, there are three counters on top of the original one and three counters to the right of the original one.

The pattern rule going down (value to value to value….) is +2.

The pattern rule going across (relating figure # to the value) is X2-1.

It is better to know the pattern rule going across, rather than down is because….WELL, I’m not going to tell you because that’s the ANSWER!!

I created my scatter plot at an online site. For my scatter plot, I’ve titled it “Scatter Plot for Growing Pattern”. The x-axis (horizontal) is titled “Figure Number” and I’ve went from 1 to 5 on that line. The y-axis (vertical) is titled “Number of Counters” and represents the number of counters that I used for each figure. I can tell that I built my growing pattern correctly because my scatter plot lines are in a straight line. If they weren’t, I would know that I made a mistake in my growing pattern.

  1. Looks like someone watched the YouTube video….. Now we can all be proud of you for learning to parent the page!
    18 comments bugging you to parent it and 1 comment and counting for good comments! Now lets see if you get more than 18 good comments on this page. I doubt it but it is worth a try! 🙂

  2. Wait lets make it 2 comments and counting! Remember when you made us write a 500 word essay! Here were the words you used to this essay: “THE TIME THE GRADE 7s WERE RIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

    We think it is very important to treat adults with respect because adults will be there to correct us, to educate us, to help us and prepare us for our own adulthood. If there isn’t a incomparable, highest standard, amazing teacher (that is practically our BFF) there for us who knows where we will end up (maybe in grade 7 the rest of our lives (YAH)) This is why you are being a good teacher making us write a 500 word essay as punishment of teasing you about your one and only blog mistake (see once and a life time opportunity…. It just couldn’t be wasted!). Even if you tease us all the time…. not like it’s a bad thing or anything…. It still doesn’t make it right for us to tease you. This is why we would like to take the chance to apologize to you for our despicable behavior and let you know we are really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really sorry hope that you forgive your best grade seven class yet for our behavior.

  3. Hey MP!Good Job putting this as a parenting it under Numeracy. But enguoh about that I was wondering if you know some people. I really don’t know who they are but they just wrote on my Biomes of the world which was parented under Science and I was wondering if you know them.
