Year 6 – Mr Pattison’s Maths Group – Making sequences
Today the group were able to make sequences out of art straws. The children worked really hard and were able to move on to finding the nth term!
Using their knowledge of multiplication and last weeks algebra, they created simple formulae for each sequence.
We have been continuing sequences and finding the rules to help us to extend them. We began the find the algebraic formulas for each sequence so that we could work out the 100th, 500th, or 1000th pattern! Wow!
Can you find the formula for other sequences?
