Illuminations: Different Representations

In this activity, students create patterns using connecting cubes and describe various patterns they find in different sequences of cubes.

Students explore and describe connecting patterns, and extend their patterns using a sequence of sounds and shapes. Students investigate various ways to interpret the same sequence of cubes by exploring ways to describe patterns translating from one representation to another.
