Illuminations: Patterns and Functions

Students investigate properties of perimeter, area, and volume related to various geometric two- and three-dimensions shapes.

They conjecture, test, discuss, verbalize, and generalize patterns. Through this process they discover the salient features of the pattern, construct understandings of concepts and relationships, develop a language to talk about the pattern, integrate, and discriminate between the pattern and other patterns. When relationships between quantities in a pattern are studied, knowledge about important mathematical relationships and functions emerges.
