In geometric figure patterns, students must often recognize transformations or changes of position in the plane of a figure, particularly rotation or reflection. Rotation is the result of turning a figure around a point or a vertex, and reflection is the result of flipping a figure over a line. Students at this level do not need to know the terms related to transformations of figures.
Transferring a pattern is creating the pattern in a different form or representation.
When given the rule, determine the missing values in a list or table. (Rules will be limited to addition and subtraction of whole numbers.)
Transfer a given growing or repeating pattern from one form to another using objects, pictures, or numbers.
In numeric patterns, students must determine the difference, called the common difference, between each succeeding number in order to determine what is added to each previous number to obtain the next number. Students do not need to use the term common difference at this level.
