Supreme Court Welcome
ORC# 7867
Resource Information
Resource Type: Lessons
Discipline: Mathematics
Professional Commentary: This two-lesson unit allows students to investigate the triangular numbers in an interesting, real-world context, the Supreme Court. Beginning with the classic handshake problem, students generate geometric and algebraic representations for the patterns they encounter and conclude with a formula for the nth triangular number....

Golden Ratio
ORC# 7713
Resource Information
Resource Type: Lessons
Discipline: Mathematics
Professional Commentary: Students explore the Fibonacci sequence using a table, spreadsheet, and scatterplot.?Students build a?spreadsheet and use it to determine that?the ratio of two consecutive Fibonacci numbers approaches the Golden Ratio. Lesson resources, including suggested web sites, highlight?many real-life examples of the Golden Ratio....

Rectangle Pattern Challenges
ORC# 621
Resource Information
Resource Type: Lessons
Discipline: Mathematics
Professional Commentary: Students analyze three stages of a colorful rectangular pattern, and then determine the composition of future stages. Younger students can describe in words how the pattern grows, while older students can find algebraic expressions for the number of blocks of each color in the pattern....

Patterns to the Rescue
ORC# 2653
Resource Information
Resource Type: Lessons
Discipline: Mathematics
Professional Commentary: Students must use numerical and geometric logic to crack the double pattern that unlocks the Poddles' cyberpower vault before Hacker and his henchmen do! In this lesson, students visit the Cyberchase Club website to learn that patterns can repeat or change in more than one way at a time....

Snake Patterns-s-s-s
ORC# 241
Resource Information
Resource Type: Lessons
Discipline: Mathematics
Professional Commentary: Students explore and find rules for a growth pattern in snakes. The teacher presents students with rules for a growth pattern that involves red and black rings in imaginary snakes....

The Fibonacci Series
ORC# 1495
Resource Information
Resource Type: Lessons
Discipline: Mathematics
Professional Commentary: In this lesson, students explore the Fibonacci series. They identify the pattern among the Fibonacci numbers, look for applications of these numbers, and explore the ways that this pattern can be related to objects and shapes in both the natural and designed world....

The Yo-Yo Problem: Solving Linear Equations
ORC# 129
Resource Information
Resource Type: Lessons
Discipline: Mathematics
Professional Commentary: Students explore linear patterns, write a pattern in symbolic form, and solve linear equations using algebra tiles, symbolic manipulation, and the graphing calculator. The lesson starts with the presentation of the yo-yo problem....

Hop to It
ORC# 122
Resource Information
Resource Type: Lessons
Discipline: Mathematics
Professional Commentary: This lesson emphasizes discerning patterns and developing general rules for the nth term of a sequence. Using an eighth grade TIMSS item (how many small triangles are subsumed in a sequence of increasingly large similar triangles), students look for patterns, find a general rule, and express the rule using a variable....
