Practise for Olympiad needs resilience. Often times we seek variety to teach our child in innovative ways. How do I teach patterns to my child? Parents frequently ask.
“Patterns are the heart of mathematics” is not a new discovery.
When and which patterns should be introduced in children is a trivia most parents and educators face? Not anymore!
What are Patterns?
A repeated design or a recurring sequence is called a Pattern. As children grow, they experience number patterns through the huge concept of functions in mathematics. But patterns are much broader.
Types of Patterns:
Children can explore logic patterns, number patterns, and word patterns. Whilst teaching, You could apply reasoning to answer “what’s next?” not with a number but with a description. You’ll focus on how to develop “function sense” without simply asking what will come next. Through visual and written forms of expressions, you’ll connect language and mathematics to develop skills for thinking clearly, strategically, critically, and creatively.
