Lesson: Shape Patterns Mathematics • 4th Grade
In this lesson, we will learn how to use tables to investigate shape patterns, find the rule a pattern follows, and predict future shapes in the pattern.
Sample Question Videos
What will the 16th shape in this pattern be?
Jacob is going to make a repeating pattern with this repeating part.
What are the first 9 shapes in this pattern?
He notices that the 3rd, 6th, and 9th shapes are all squares. He guesses that the 12th and the 15th shapes will be squares because they are multiples of 3, and there are 3 shapes in the repeated part.
Is his guess correct?
What will the 31st shape be?
Predict how many hexagons will be present if the given pattern is extended to have a total of 38 polygons.
