# Describing Number Patterns

Students learn describing number patterns on a term to term basis.  More able students tackle Fibonacci and geometric sequences.At the start of the lesson students recap using function machines to find a series of outputs.  In the main part of the lesson they learn how to describe, continue and predict missing terms in a sequence.  At the end of the lesson they encounter the sequences created from the Binomial triangle.
##### Differentiated Learning Objectives
• All students should be able to describe the term to term rule of simple linear sequences.
• Most students should be able to describe the term to term rule and calculate missing terms of a numerical sequence.
• Some students should be able to describe the term to term rule of sequences involving fractions, decimals and percentages.
