Common Core State Standards for Mathematics
Standards for Mathematical Practice
Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning.
Ohio Mathematics Academic Content Standards (2001)
Patterns, Functions and Algebra Standard
Extend sequences of sounds and shapes or simple number patterns, and create and record similar patterns.
Create and extend patterns, and describe the rule in words.
Grade Level Indicators (Grade Prekindergarten)
Identify, copy, extend and create simple patterns or sequences of sound, shapes and motions in the context of daily activities and play.
Grade Level Indicators (Grade Kindergarten)
Identify, create, extend and copy sequences of sounds (such as musical notes), shapes (such as buttons, leaves or blocks), motions (such as hops or skips), and numbers from 1 to 10.
Describe orally the pattern of a given sequence.
Grade Level Indicators (Grade 1)
Extend sequences of sounds, shapes or simple number patterns, and create and record similar patterns. For example:
a. Analyze and describe patterns with multiple attributes using numbers and shapes; e.g., AA, B, aa, b, AA, B, aa, b, ...
b. Continue repeating and growing patterns with materials, pictures and geometric items; e.g., XO, XOO, XOOO, XOOOO.
Describe orally the basic unit or general plan of a repeating or growing pattern.
Grade Level Indicators (Grade 2)
Extend simple number patterns (both repeating and growing patterns), and create similar patterns using different objects, such as using physical materials or shapes to represent numerical patterns.
Principles and Standards for School Mathematics
Understand patterns, relations, and functions
recognize, describe, and extend patterns such as sequences of sounds and shapes or simple numeric patterns and translate from one representation to another;
analyze how both repeating and growing patterns are generated.
