**2. **Use your pocket calculator and investigate the following patterns:

a) 1 × 1 = 1

11 × 11 = 121

111 × 111 = ________________________

1 111 × 1 111 = _____________________

11 111 × 11 111 = ___________________

b) Now predict: 111 111 × 111 111 = _________________

c) Validate your answer with your pocket calculator.

**3**. Complete the following patterns:

a) i) 9 109 × 1 = __________________

ii) 9 109 × 2 = __________________

iii) 9 109 × 3 = __________________

iv) 9 109 × 4 = __________________

b) What will be the answer to:

i) 9 109 × 7? __________________

ii) 9 109 × 9? __________________

c) Now explain the pattern to a friend.

**4**. a) Here is another interesting pattern to investigate.

i) 37 × 3 = __________________

ii) 37 × 6 = __________________

iii) 37 × 9 = __________________

b) What have you noticed? _________________________________________

_____________________________________________________________

c) Fill in the missing answers:

i) 37 × ________________ = 444

ii) 37 × ________________ = 555

d) What will the product of 37 and 24 be? ______________________

e) Check your answer with the help of your pocket calculator.

**5**. a) Calculate the following:

i) 111 111 ÷ 3 = ________________

ii) 222 222 ÷ 6 = ________________

iii) 333 333 ÷ 9 = . ________________

b) Write down 2 similar sums which will give the same answer.

i) __________________________________________________________

ii) __________________________________________________________

**6**. a) Also investigate the following pattern:

i) 1 × 15 873 × 7 = ______________________________

ii) 2 × 15 873 × 7 = ______________________________

iii) 3 × 15 873 × 7 = ______________________________

b) Without using your pocket calculator, predict:

i) 5 × 15 873 × 7 = ______________________________

ii) 7 × 15 873 × 7 = ______________________________

**7**. a) With the help of your pocket calculator write down the following answers:

i) 99 × 11 = ______________________________

ii) 99 × 22 = ______________________________

iii) 99 × 33 = ______________________________

iv) 99 × 44 = ______________________________

b) Examine the pattern carefully. Explain it to a friend.

ii) _______________ × _______________ = _______________

Complete the following by colouring the appropriate blocks: | yes | no | ||

I can complete number patterns with the help of my pocket calculator | ||||

I can predict patterns without the help of my pocket calculator | ||||

I still need help to really understand this particular learning unit |

*Learning Outcome 2:*The learner will be able to recognise, describe and represent patterns and relationships, as well as to solve problems using algebraic language and skills.

*Assessment Standard 2.1:* We know this when the learner investigates and extends numeric and geometric patterns looking for a relationship or rules, including patterns.
