Number Sense Made Simple Using Number Patterns
Su, Hui Fang Huang; Marinas, Carol; Furner, Joseph
International Journal for Technology in Mathematics Education, v18 n1 p39-49 2011
This article highlights investigating intriguing number patterns utilising an emerging technology called the Square Tool. Mathematics teachers of grades K-12 will find the Square Tool useful in making connections and bridging the gap from the concrete to the abstract. Pattern recognition helps students discover various mathematical concepts. With the development of puzzles, games, and computer programs, students have a chance to learn and practice the skills that are being created in the mathematics classrooms. By studying patterns that exist within different number arrangements, consistencies are observed among them. K-12 students will investigate various mathematics relationships found in numbered squares including multiples, factors, ratios of comparative numbers, and other mathematical concepts K-12. (Contains 2 tables and 12 figures.)
