Teaching patterns is an introduction to algebra. Grab these free digital pattern puzzles to build algebraic thinking in your students.
You may have never thought about how practicing patterns can benefit your learners. However, patterns provide a sense of order and allow for many other skills we may not have considered.
Teaching patterns can also introduce kids to educated guesses, assumptions, critical thinking, logic, and hypotheses. Patterns are also the building blocks for the ability to understand algebra.
When students are introduced to noticing patterns in numbers and order of operations, tackling algebra will be a smoother transition for them.
