Ch 30: 4th Grade Math: Patterns & Sequences

About This Chapter

These engaging video lessons cover mathematical sequences and their applications. Use them along with the multiple-choice quizzes to teach your 4th grade student how to determine sequences and identify the patterns found within them.

4th Grade Math: Patterns and Sequences - Chapter Summary

If your 4th grader could use some extra resources for studying sequences, check out the lessons in this chapter. Short illustrated videos can help your student visualize the mathematical patterns that result when the same number is added, subtracted, multiplied or divided. Students can also get experience finding terms in a sequence or identifying patterns on their own through the multiple-choice lesson quizzes and chapter test.
