Finding Rules and Describing Patterns Progression and Activities

A while ago, some draft materials were produced that looked at the progression in finding rules and describing patterns.  The birthday candles problem fits in well with the consecutive number activities discussed in the challenging more able children post.

Because I am interested in trying to develop problem solving right across the school, I used the primary framework for mathematics to support teachers at school get a better understanding of progression by pulling out examples for each year group. I then produced a document that linked the progression documents to guidance materials and activities.

The result is a series of word documents that hyperlink to smartboard files, worksheets and interactive teaching materials to help plan and teach maths in a more systematic way throughout school.

Here is the document I produced to support teachers with finding rules and describing patterns.If you click on the picture, you will access the full document, however the hyperlinks won’t work. You need to click here, then download the complete zipped file.

To download the zipfile, click here (Mediafire) or here (4share):

If you do download the zipfile, be patient it takes a while. You will need to unzip it, open the folder and locate the word document: LT patterns, sequences and rules. Everything hyperlinks from there.

I have attached a step by step guide for unzipping the folder. click here
