The main purpose of this study is to determine the strategies of using the generalizing patterns of the primary fifth grade students. The practice of this research is conducted on twelve students, which have high, middle and low success levels. Task-based interviews and students journals are used as the tools for data collection. For the analysis of the data, a classification method including "data reduction", "data display" and "drawing conclusion and verification" are used. At the end of the research, it is seen that the visual and numerical approaches are adopted in the generalization of patterns and the visual approach is made easy for generalization, as well. In generally, the present strategies in the generalizing of patterns are also taken into account of near or far generalizing. The recursive strategies are used in the near generalizing. However, the explicit strategies are determined in using far generalizing. (Contains 2 figures.)
