Patterns:Written by tutor Jeff S.Understanding the words group and pattern will help us understand Algebraic and Geometric patterns. A group is a number of things that we can see and touch that are related. They can be related based on any number of reasons. For example, the items may be in a group because they are the same color or size. Its important to remember that groups are made up of things we can touch and see. For example, we cant have a group of blue; it doesnt make sense! But, we can have a group of blue cars together in a parking lot. The word pattern describes groups of things with characteristics that repeat in a predictable way. For example, our brain uses patterns to help us quickly make sense of the world around us. Imagine being shocked each time you saw green grass in front a house in a suburban neighborhood! Our brain makes things easy by recognizing that (almost) all grass in front of suburban homes is green. Patterns help us to quickly learn new skills, too. Piano students soon learn to recognize the pattern of white and black keys on the keyboard. We can describe the pattern of the piano keys like this: white, black, white, black, white, black, white, white. We can also shorten this by using letters to represent each word: W, B, W, B, W, B, W, W. Another word for pattern is sequence. We will use both words to learn about Algebraic and Geometric patterns.
