*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;

*Assessment Standard 2.3:* We know this when the learner represents and uses relationships between variables in order to determine input and/or output values in a variety of ways using;

*Assessment Standard 2.4:* We know this when the learner constructs mathematical models that represent, describe and provide solutions to problem situations, showing responsibility toward the environment and the health of others (including problems within human rights, social, economic, cultural and environmental contexts).
