Number Patterns

Number Patterns are typical math drill that children encounter although most of the time, the obvious is not that obvious.

Patterns are repeated over and over. These could be numbers, repeated lines, colors, shapes, forms and even behavior.

Number patterns

For an example on number patterns, the factors for 2 are the following: 2 4 6 8 10
12 14 16 18 20
22 24 26 28 30

Number patterns are often given in math aptitude tests because it serves to see how students observe the way the numbers in a number series (among other things) relate to each other.

Some examples of number patterns:

Arithmetic Sequences:

1, 4, 7, 10, 13, 16, 19, 22, 25, …

25, 23, 21, 19, 17, 15, …

Geometric Sequences:

3, 9, 27, 81, 243, 729, 2187, …

Cube Numbers:

1, 8, 27, 64, 125, 216, 343, 512, 729, …

Math Quiz Bee Elimination Round

From the Teacher, Grade 2 Lessons, Homeschoolers No More, Mathematics No Comments

She said they had the first elimination round for the Math Quiz Bee and she got the second highest score among her classmates.

Oh? I asked.

Yes! She said, with her signature look and furrow between the brows. She has mixed feelings that I don’t believe her.

For a while, I did feel surprise, not that I doubt she can do her best but because I was happy for her.

I am happy, deliriously happy. Why? Because math is her waterloo. The younger daughter has so much difficulty doing math problems that we used to be up late with me teaching her how dynamic subtraction is done and why this is even related to division. And when we do this, she gives me blank looks. And tears at times.

I told her, I want her to do her best to get a slot in the Math quiz bee but getting that second highest score is already a win for me.

I also told her that if she sets her heart with what she wants to achieve, she can overcome her difficulties.

Love, Tiger Mom, XOXO :D

Skipped School

From the Teacher, Grade 2 Lessons, Younger Daughter No Comments

With the flu hopping around and making people sick these days, I had to have my youngest daughter skip school today because she has not been feeling well herself. No high fever but she seems to be lethargic and does not seem to sleep well. Appetite is good though so it means she is not that sick.  I really hope so.

She reports though that there were several students in school with chicken pox. I hope there’s not going to be an outbreak in the school as what happened last year. Ack!

So, here are ways on how to increase the immune level and be healthier and prevent these viruses and bacteria from making us sick.
