## Patterns & Sequences Worksheets

What are patterns and sequences?

These two topics are different ways of looking at the same thing. Consider the counting numbers, written in a row: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 and on and on...

Now, if we label them as either even or odd, we get this pattern: O, E, O, E, O, E, O and on and on as long as we wish. The pattern is "every other number is even and the rest are odd". The sequence is how they are generated, one after the other. So, the sequence would be, "write an O for odd, and then an E for even and continue, switching every time you write another letter."

A pattern tells us the overall picture and a sequence talks about a stepwise way to get that picture.
