Repeating Shape Patterns

In this video, we will learn how to
find missing and next shapes by continuing a repeating pattern.

This is a repeating shape
pattern. Let’s look closely at the pattern
and see if we can work out why it’s called a repeating pattern. Orange circle, blue triangle,
orange circle, blue triangle, orange circle, blue triangle, orange circle, blue
triangle. Did you work out what the repeating
part of the shape pattern is? It’s orange circle, blue
triangle. This pattern is repeated over and
over again. We call it a repeating pattern
because the pattern keeps on repeating itself.

Which shape would be next in our
pattern? It would be the orange circle. Once we know what the repeating
part of the pattern is, we can keep on repeating the pattern. We can find the next shape or a
missing shape. Let’s use what we’ve learned about
repeating patterns to answer some questions.

Look at this repeating pattern. Which shape comes next? Is it the pink square or the blue
circle?

Let’s look at the repeating
pattern. Blue circle, pink square, blue
circle, pink square, blue circle, pink square. Have you worked out the repeating
part of the pattern? This is the part of the pattern
which repeats itself: blue circle, pink square. And then, we get blue circle, pink
square again. Which shape would come next in the
pattern?

Let’s repeat the pattern to try and
find out. Blue circle, pink square, blue
circle, pink square, and another blue circle and a pink square. The pattern repeats again. The shape which comes next is the
blue circle. We looked at the repeating pattern
and found the shape which comes next.

What are the next three shapes?

We’re shown a repeating shape
pattern. We have to find the next three
shapes. Let’s see if we can work out what
the repeating part of the pattern is. Red circle, blue circle, green
circle, red circle, blue circle, green circle. So, this is the repeating part of
the pattern. Red, blue, green, red, blue,
green. So, the next three shapes will be
red, blue, green. The next three shapes in the
repeating shape pattern are red circle, blue circle, green circle.

Look at this pattern. Who is correct? The girl says, “The repeating part
is green triangle, pink square.” The boy says, “The repeating part
is pink square, green triangle.”

Let’s look closely at the repeating
shape pattern to work out who is correct. We start with a green triangle then
a pink square, green triangle, pink square, and another green triangle and pink
square. Have you worked out the repeating
part of the pattern yet? It’s green triangle, pink
square. That means that the girl is
correct. The repeating part of the pattern
is green triangle, pink square.

What have we learned in this
video? We’ve learned how to find the next
or missing shapes in a repeating shape pattern.
