Description

Tying the Concrete-Representational-Abstract forms of arithmetic sequences together supports students’ understanding of the concepts of patterns.  Fluency evolves as the students are able to efficiently and effectively navigate between the tabular, graphical, and algebraic representations of a relationship.
The value of the concrete and representational phases of this experience cannot be stressed enough - these are the underpinnings which make true understanding possible.
