We are in the third unit of our math Investigations program. The focus of this unit is patterning. Today students worked on building patterns using a variety of math manipulatives. They were able to create patterns with 2 color counters, pattern blocks, unifix (interlocking) cubes, and plastic bears. Most of our patterns were color patterns. I asked students to think about how we might build patterns without using colors. We will continue our work on patterning during the month of December.
