youcubed: Checkerboards & More (6-8)

This activity allows students to explore number patterns they make on a grid.

By changing the size of the grid and the number they count by students discover different patterns that are made on the grid. After exploring with pictures they begin to generalize and make conjectures as to how to create different patterns. Exploring and generalizing through visuals are an important aspect of mathematics.
