Summary: Number Patterns

## Leaner Section

### ACTIVITY 1: [LO 2.1]

4. A set of numbers that is obtained by following a rule (such as the above example ) is called a NUMBER SEQUENCE or NUMBER PATTERN.

5. Create your own number pattern.

• Choose any number less than 10. Write it down
• Multiply this number by 4 and add 3 to it. This will be the next number in your series . Write it down.
• Multiply the new number by 4 and add 3 to it. Write this number down also.
• Continue doing this until the first seven numbers of your series have been determined.

• Ask a friend to check if you have calculated your series correctly.

6. Quickly write down the following:

a. Your home telephone number: _____________________________________________________________________

c. Your mother or father's cell phone number: _______________________________

d. Your school's telephone number: _______________________________________

• Do you recognise any patterns that make the numbers easier to memorise?______________________________________________________
• If so, what is the pattern?

_______________________________________________________________

_______________________________________________________________

## Assessment

#### Definition of a lens

##### Lenses

A lens is a custom view of the content in the repository. You can think of it as a fancy kind of list that will let you see content through the eyes of organizations and people you trust.

##### What is in a lens?

Lens makers point to materials (modules and collections), creating a guide that includes their own comments and descriptive tags about the content.

##### Who can create a lens?

Any individual member, a community, or a respected organization.

##### What are tags?

Tags are descriptors added by lens makers to help label content, attaching a vocabulary that is meaningful in the context of the lens.
