About This Chapter
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.
Chapter Lessons and Objectives
|What Is a Mathematical Sequence?||Students get an introduction to arithmetic and geometric sequences as well as a special kind of recursive sequence, the Fibonacci sequence.|
|Finding and Classifying Geometric Sequences||Instructors explain the processes involved in finding a geometric sequence.|
|Solving Increasing Growth Patterns||Students apply their knowledge of sequences to solve problems involving growth patterns.|
|Identifying Number Patterns in Word Problems||Instructors demonstrate the steps required to solve word problems including number patterns.|
|Identifying Number Patterns with Addition or Subtraction||Students learn how addition and subtraction can be used to identify number patterns.|
|Identifying Number Patterns with Multiplication or Division||Students apply skills learned in the previous lesson to identify multiplication and division patterns.|
1. What is a Mathematical Sequence?
Math is often the most fun when it acts like a puzzle to be solved. The branch of math where this is the most true involves sequences. Get an introduction to the basics and important vocabulary, as well as learn where sequences appear in nature!
2. Finding and Classifying Geometric Sequences
Want your YouTube video to get a lot of hits? Besides including a cute baby or an adorable cat, getting your video to have a big common ratio is the key. Learn what I'm talking about here!
