This project is designed for F-3.0, however could easily be adjusted to suit other levels. In this project, students will build on their Pattern knowledge through playing the role of ‘fencers’-by trade. Students are to follow the project outline that is targeted at their level (working towards), which will require them to create fence ‘blueprints’ for their ‘customers’.

Pattern Project (Building Fences) k

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…

Continue this process to make more number patterns!
