Pre-Service Mathematics Teachers' Pattern Conversion Ability: Generating Figural Patterns Based on Number Patterns
Kiliç, Çigdem
International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, v18 n1 p1-24 2017
In that current study, pattern conversion ability of 25 pre-service mathematics teachers (producing figural patterns following number patterns) was investigated. During the study participants were asked to generate figural patterns based on those number patterns. The results of the study indicate that many participants could generate different figural patterns effectively, mostly by using geometric shapes. Moreover, most of the participants could generate linear figural patterns successfully compared with non-linear patterns based on number patterns and used different pattern generating strategies. In that study, some of the participants had issues while generating figural patterns.
