    This resource was matched by a member of the Brokers of Expertise standards matching team. I think that this might be a bit of a stretch for students below 3rd grade, but kids have often proven me incorrect. It could easily be used for students beyond 3rd grade as well.

This is part one of a three-part E-example from the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics that highlights different aspects of students' understanding and use of patterns as they analyze relationships and make predictions. This part includes an interactive figure for creating, comparing, and viewing multiple repetitions of pattern units. E-examples are selected from the electronic version of the Principles and Standards for School Mathematics (PSSM).
