KG MATH 6: Patterns & Relational Sense

A pattern comes about because of some repeating characteristic, such as color, shape, size, etc. Different types of repetitions generate different patterns regardless of what is being repeated.

A relation is an existing connection; or a significant association between or among things. Because of a relation, if something is present then we may expect another thing to be present as well. A pattern is made up of relations. To see a pattern is to have a sense of relations among things.

A number line is a pattern that presents relations among numbers. With the help of this pattern we may locate a missing or hidden number.

A symbol may be used to represent a missing or hidden number in a pattern. The position of that symbol in that relationship may then help discover that number. Here are some exercises in this subject for the kindergarten level.
