Number Patterns – Roll-a-Rule


Posted by lisar | Posted in Pattern | Posted on September 17, 2015

Roll a die, the number rolled becomes the rule for a number pattern. You can either start the number pattern from a zero starting point or roll dice to determine the starting point, depending on students/year level. Use any of the four operations to create a number pattern using the number rolled as the rule. You can use 6, 10 or 20 sided dice depending on students and expectations. For example, I rolled two dice displaying a 9 and a 7. I will start my number pattern from 97. I then rolled a 6. I will subtract 6 as my rule for my number pattern; 97, 91, 85, 79, 73…
