Illuminations: Playing With Patterns

Students use objects and symbols to make repeating linear patterns.

They extend patterns and translate patterns from one modality (auditory, visual, and kinesthetic) to another. A Physical Education connection is suggested as an extension. This lesson is intended to take two class periods to ensure that all students have multiple opportunities to create original patterns.
