# Introduction to Number Patterns

## Number pattern activities.

A pattern of numbers is A series of numbers that follow A pattern. So let’s look at an example: 20 15 10 5 0. The numbers are reduced 5 Each this is the pattern.

Number patterns are sequences of numbers which follow a particular rule or pattern. They can be used to help students develop understanding of mathematical concepts including algebra and arithmetic. In many different areas of mathematics Number patterns are found such as geometry trigonometry and calculus.

For identification and extension of number patterns it is important to understand the terms used to describe them. In a number pattern The first term is usually called an initial term and subsequent terms are generated by applying a consistent rule or formula. The difference between consecutive terms is called The common difference in The pattern in some patterns The ratio of consecutive terms is called The common difference.

Number pattern can be represented by different methods including tables graphs and algebraic expressions. Using The study of number patterns students can develop problem solving skills logical reasoning and critical thinking skills. Students can apply this knowledge to solve complex mathematical problems in a variety of fields By understanding the underlying principles of number patterns.
