]]>These patterns can be used with elementary students (if you just ask number questions) through advanced algebra (if you include questions about functions).

Mathematics is often described as the study of patterns. That is exactly what * Spotting Numbers *and

The interplay of **geometry** and **numbers** and **algebraic thinking** in these questions puts the learner squaring at the core of **mathematical reasoning**. Quite frankly, it doesn’t get much better than this! (OK, my opinion.)

Here are some questions. As a general rule, For Elementary: a-b; Middle School: a-d; Algebra: a-e

a. How many *** are in next figure?

b. How many *** are in next figure after that?

c. How many *** are in pattern n = 10?

d. How many *** are in pattern n = 43?

e. Generalize: How many *** are in pattern n?

*** might be spots, triangles, butterflies, football helmets, etc.
