Patterns and Relations

Students are beginning to work on patterns in Math class. This is a natural introduction to our Multiplication unit; after all, multiplying is just using number patterns!

Encourage your child to look for patterns everywhere – in art, nature, even in the grocery store!

Here is the language that we will be using for patterns: “Start at ____, and ________ by ____ each time.”

For example, “Start at 4 and increase by 4 each time” is the pattern to describe the x4 times table. Please reinforce the use of this language at home in Math.
