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.
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, …

For those who will be taking the SY 2013-2014 Philippine Science High School National Competitive Exams on September 29, 2012, here is the link:
The link includes the following:
DO NOT FORGET to bring your examination permit and school ID.
If in case you did not make it, this is ok, remember that a school’s name does not make a man (or a woman).
If you (yes, you, the parents) and/or your child plan to apply to Quezon City Science High School, here are the things you need to do:
Quezon City Science High School Requirements:
Grade Requirements for Applying to Quezon City Science High School:
The first screening for Quezon City Science High School SY 2013 – 2014 will be on October 22, 2012. It will run for one hour only.
First screening test will mostly be about general subject areas.
For those who passed the second screening, an interview will be scheduled.
UPDATE.3
I just want to clarify that like you, I am a mom who wishes to have my child enroll in Quezon City Science High School and I am NOT in any way connected to the school. If in case we get a favorable result, then we will definitely enroll there. If not, well, there is still the youngest child to consider after a year.
UPDATE.4
I will be editing some of the comments posted earlier. This is my blog and even if I was not the one who wrote the comments, I have been bothered with some of what was written and I was advised to edit the comments that are in a way, malicious.
Thank you very much for visiting and I hope I was able to help some of you in my own little way.
IMPORTANT UPDATE:
Application for the Quezon City Science High School entrance exams first screening is NOTat the school campus anymore, proceed to the Quezon City Science Interactive Building at the QC Deped compound.

3. If the digit to the right of the number to be rounded is 5 and above round up the number. When you:
A. Round Up
-add 1 to the digit to be rounded off and replace all digits to the right of the number to be rounded with zero.
B. Round Down
-copy the digit to be rounded off and replace all the digits on the right with zero.
