PR Patterns and Relations

  • PR.1 Use patterns to describe the world and to solve problems.

    • PR.1.1 Demonstrate an understanding of increasing patterns by:

    • PR.1.2 Demonstrate an understanding of decreasing patterns by:

      • PR.1.2.a describing numerical (numbers to 1000) and non-numerical patterns using manipulatives, diagrams, sounds and actions.

      • PR.1.2.b extending numerical (numbers to 1000) and non-numerical patterns using manipulatives, diagrams, sounds and actions.

      • PR.1.2.c comparing numerical (numbers to 1000) and non-numerical patterns using manipulatives, diagrams, sounds and actions.

      • PR.1.2.d creating numerical (numbers to 1000) and non-numerical patterns using manipulatives, diagrams, sounds and actions.

      • PR.1.2.1 Describe a given decreasing pattern by stating a pattern rule that includes the starting point and a description of how the pattern continues.

      • PR.1.2.2 Identify the pattern rule of a given decreasing pattern, and extend the pattern for the next three terms.

      • PR.1.2.3 Identify and explain errors in a given decreasing pattern.

      • PR.1.2.4 Identify and describe various decreasing patterns found on a hundred chart, such as horizontal, vertical and diagonal patterns.

      • PR.1.2.5 Compare decreasing numeric patterns of counting backward by 2s, 5s, 10s, 25s and 100s.

      • PR.1.2.6 Create a concrete, pictorial or symbolic decreasing pattern for a given pattern rule.

      • PR.1.2.7 Create a concrete, pictorial or symbolic decreasing pattern; and describe the relationship, using a pattern rule.

      • PR.1.2.8 Solve a given problem, using decreasing patterns.

      • PR.1.2.9 Identify and describe decreasing patterns in the environment.

      • PR.1.2.10 Identify and apply a pattern rule to determine missing elements for a given pattern.

      • PR.1.2.11 Describe the strategy used to determine missing elements in a given decreasing pattern.

    • PR.2.4 Solve one-step addition and subtraction equations involving a symbol to represent an unknown number.

      • PR.2.4.1 Explain the purpose of the symbol in a given addition or subtraction equation with one unknown; e.g., in the equation 3 + ? = 10, the triangle represents the number that would make the equation true.

      • PR.2.4.2 Create an addition or subtraction equation with one unknown to represent a given combining or separating action.

      • PR.2.4.3 Provide an alternative symbol for the unknown in a given addition or subtraction equation.

      • PR.2.4.4 Solve, using manipulatives, a given addition or subtraction equation with one unknown that represents combining or separating actions.

      • PR.2.4.5 Solve a given addition or subtraction equation with one unknown, using a variety of strategies, including guess and test.

      • PR.2.4.6 Solve a given addition or subtraction equation when the unknown is on the left or the right side of the equation.

      • PR.2.4.7 Explain why the unknown in a given addition or subtraction equation has only one value.
