These are photos from our Maths lesson on Patterns and Algebra this week. Madeleine and Yasmine are creating AB patterns (patterns involving two variables) and recording them in their Math Journals.
On the carpet are more complex patterns using paddle pop sticks. Some are in 3D, showing creative thinking by the children. An extension of this is to create patterns which can be transferred to sounds such as tapping and clapping. These are all foundational concepts for algebra in later years. Both 2nd class T and C did this block of work.
