Funny I never could understand how patterning expressions worked. As a teacher myself, I one day just sat down and figured it out (the relationship between the term # and the value), but it was not easy. Not sure how I got through High School Math but ya know. I only wish this was the way I was taught as I know it would have definitely been less of a struggle for me. I have tossed around this notion of using visuals to understand how to construct expressions in my own class. This lesson though really reminded me the multiple ways that you can analyze the visual pattern and break it down. Leaving it open for our class to identity the number of ways you can visually deconstruct the pattern will be a must for me!
