How can I prove a pattern that I can see?
In this elective, students have been exploring how to identify mathematical patterns and prove them using algebra. The module culminated in students producing a maths report which detailed the investigation they explored.
Over six weeks, students drafted and redrafted their maths report around a pattern with the laws of indices:
22 x 52 = 102
33 x 43 = 123
Can you explain why?
What The Teachers say!
“I am so incredibly proud of the work that the students of this elective have achieved. Not only did they develop a deep understanding of mathematical patterns and how this relates to algebra, but they volunteered openness by requesting feedback on their writing from their peers.”
