This is part two 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 gives examples of various ways students might interpret the same sequence of cubes. These differences illustrate the importance of discussing and analyzing patterns in the classroom. E-examples are selected from the electronic version of the Principles and Standards for School Mathematics (PSSM). Less
