Lesson 11

Patterns and Ordered Pairs

Lesson Purpose

The purpose of this lesson is for students to represent corresponding terms in two patterns on the coordinate grid.

Lesson Narrative

The purpose of this lesson is to continue to analyze the relationship between two patterns by plotting corresponding numbers on the coordinate grid. After generating patterns in previous lessons, students now make ordered pairs from those numbers and plot them on the coordinate grid. They observe patterns and interpret the meaning of points on the coordinate grid in terms of generating rules.
