Additional videos related to children's learning of patterns.
There are all types of patterns. This handout describes a variety of these patterns and how to assess children’s increasingly sophisticated knowledge of this important mathematical domain.

Patterns can be notoriously difficult to define. This handout provides illustrations of teacher-child interactions that help take apart (and put back together!) patterns to support our understanding of pattern
There are many daily-life activities in which children engage with mathematical patterns. This handout describes some of these activities.
Can young children do algebra? This handout illustrates the links between algebraic thinking and patterns.
Children are interested in order at an early age. When order has regularity (that is, size increases by a specific amount each time), the order becomes a pattern. This handout illustrates examples of this particular kind of pattern, called growing patterns.
Children can learn surprisingly sophisticated patterns related to the counting words. In this handout, Anna illustrates her understanding of the decades pattern in the English-language counting-word sequence.
