Visual Patterns: exploring mathematical relationships K-9

Feedback form is now closed.

Visual Patterns: Beyond the Table of Values

What does a linear relationship look like? At elementary school, students are often asked to create word problems for the given equations, but what would it look like to create patterns for given equations?

This interactive session is designed for the participants to explore how visualization connects two mathematical “basics”, spatial reasoning and number sense. Participants will explore how analyzing, extending and constructing visual patterns can bring together different strands and outcomes of K-9 Alberta Program of studies for mathematics. We will discuss how working with visual patterns can

support students in moving from recursive (additive) thinking to relational (multiplicative). We will also consider how technology can support students in working with visual patterns.
