Worksheet: Nth Term of Shape Patterns
In this worksheet, we will practice recognizing a repeating pattern to say what the nth shape will be.
William 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?
If the given pattern is extended to have 11 polygons, how many of them will be green?
Olivia is making patterns of shapes using matchsticks.
