Calculating Cat has found a paper napkin.
What can you see? What do you notice?
Look at the rows of cakes. Look at the columns.
Describe the cakes.
How many cakes with hearts are there?
How many brown cakes?
How many cakes have cases that are not pink?
Calculating Cat noticed an AB pattern in the second row. She used the rule to make her own pattern.
Look at the two patterns. What is the same? What is different?
Try making your own pattern with different objects. Remember the rule. Your pattern can go on and on and on………….
Now Calculating Cat has an ABAC pattern.
Draw coloured lines to copy Calculating Cat’s pattern. Continue the pattern to the end of your page.
Investigate the other rows and columns on the paper napkin.
Look for patterns that decorate other things around the house and outside. Which patterns are repeating patterns?
