Reflection: More Tile Patterns - Section 3: Closing


I realized during this lesson that I hadn't collected a piece of work from each student individually, and I wanted to make sure that students understood that they would be held accountable for learning certain key skills within each lesson. I asked them to analyze one of two patterns, one was linear and one was non-linear. This gave me a quick chance to make sure that at the very least students were able to identify a linear pattern and describe it using an explicit formula.

Unit 1: Linear and Nonlinear Functions
Lesson 3 of 13

Objective: Students will be able to find the recursive and explicit rule to complete both linear and nonlinear tile sequences.

Big Idea: Let's look at number patterns and geometric structure. Some students will look at number sequences to generate rules while others dig into the geometric structures. Great opportunity to explore equivalent expressions!
