Facebook Live Coaching #33 – Patterns (II)
How do you solve number pattern problems …especially number sequence in the table and asking which row and column does a particular number appear?
Is it just a matter of memorizing the different kinds of number patterns, e.g. square numbers, consecutive numbers, cube numbers, etc…. And if the child does not recognize the pattern instantly, do they try each one on the patterns you know to see if it fits into any of them?
If this is the way you do it, then what happens in tests where your time is limited? Surely you can’t go through 20 different number patterns trying each one, one-by-one, until you find the answer!
Do you derive the expression of the pattern … but then the use algebraic equations is not recommended in primary?
Join us on Facebook Live on 26 Sept@8PM and master the techniques to solve such problem effortlessly… even your if child has always been confused by patterns!
