# Pattern Pair Play

Subject: Math

Lesson Length: 30 - 40 mins

Topic: Operations and Algebraic Thinking; Analyze Patterns and Relationships of Ordered Pairs

Standards / Framework:

Brief Description: Students will create a numerical pattern using a given rule and apply to generate ordered pairs. Students will explain the relationship between the numbers.

Know Before You Start: This lesson would be useful after an introduction to numerical patterns and ordered pairs.

Hook:

• Read and discuss the sample comic.
• What rule is Professor McBean’s machine following?
• Use the table linked in the Resources section to show the ordered pairs depicted in the comic.

Activity:

• Students will discuss and explain the relationship between the x and y in an ordered pair.

• Students can practice generating ordered pairs using two given rules, e.g., starting with 0, add 4 and starting with 0, add 6.

• Using the sample comic and the table as a guide, students will depict three ordered pairs in a comic. Have students explain the relationship between the numbers in the final panel.

• Have students create their own comic with a different numerical pattern.

Closure:

• Have students work in pairs to check their work.

Differentiation:

• Allow students to use the speech-to-text feature.

• Allow students to use the voiceover feature to read their comics aloud.
• Allow students to create their comic in their home language.

• Allow students to work with a peer model.

Resources:

• Comic to print or display: Comic.
