Maryland College and Career-Ready Standards
MD.MA.4.OA. Operations and Algebraic Thinking (OA)
4.OA.C. Generate and analyze patterns.
4.OA.C.5. Additional Standard: Generate a number or shape pattern that follows a given rule. Identify apparent features of the pattern that were not explicit in the rule itself. For example, given the rule “Add 3” and the starting number 1, generate terms in the resulting sequence and observe that the terms appear to alternate between odd and even numbers. Explain informally why the numbers will continue to alternate in this way.
4.OA.C.5.1. Ability to apply knowledge of growing patterns versus repeating patterns using either numbers or shapes.
4.OA.C.5.2. Ability to analyze a set of numbers to identify the pattern given the rule.
4.OA.C.5.3. Ability to extend the pattern based on the rule given or identified.
4.OA.C.5.4. Ability to provide an explanation why numbers will continue an identified pattern.
