Lesson objective: Generate patterns and identify relationships in corresponding terms

This lesson helps to build procedural skill with generating patterns and identifying relationships in corresponding terms. An organized list is used here because it supports students in recognizing the relationships between two number patterns. This work develops students' understanding that a relationship can exist between two different number patterns and their matching values.

Students engage in Mathematical Practice 4 (Model with mathematics) as they generate and identify relationships in numberical patterns. Students also represent relationships and patterns.

**Key vocabulary:**

- number pattern
- corresponding terms
- relationship
