Strand: OPERATIONS AND ALGEBRAIC THINKING (4.OA)

Use the four operations with whole numbers (addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division) to solve problems (Standards 4.OA.13). Gain familiarity with factors and multiples (Standard 4.OA.4). Generate and analyze numeric and shape patterns (Standard 4.OA.5).

Standard 4.OA.5

Generate a number or shape pattern that follows a given rule. Identify apparent features of the pattern that were not explicit in the rule itself. For example, given the rule "add 3" and the starting number 1, generate terms in the resulting sequence and observe that the terms appear to alternate between odd and even numbers. Explain informally why the numbers will continue to alternate in this way.
