Increasing and Decreasing Sequences

  • Grade 5
  • Mathematics
  • Algebra


In this mission, students explore a variety of numerical or repeated pattern sequences, while indicating whether they are increasing or decreasing. In a robotics context, students examine regularity to make predictions and to make connections to sequences in their daily lives.

Learning goals

  • I describe different increasing and decreasing sequences as well as different sequences from my daily life.
  • I extend sequences, make predictions and justify them.
