The Name Game Lesson 1 Project M3 Awesome Algebra
What will we learn today? We will.. –Identify, build, and extend numerical and letter patterns. –Recognize and describe patterns verbally. –Make, explain, and justify generalizations that seem to always work in particular situations.
Do you ever scribble when you are thinking about a problem? I know a girl named Sarah who LOVES to write her name over and over and over when she is thinking or daydreaming.
SARAHSARAHSA What are the next five letters that Sarah would write? Explain. What would the 18 th letter be if Sarah continues the pattern? Explain.
Let’s investigate! When Sarah is working hard on a problem, she sometimes likes to scribble her name. Yesterday when her mom checked on Sarah doing her homework, she saw what Sarah had written. SARAHSARAHSARAHSARAHSARAH
Your Task: Think about the answers to the questions individually. Work with a partner to discuss and answer each question. Work hard and do your best!
Respond in your math journal: Sarah was really bored one afternoon and wrote her name 50 times. What was the 137 th letter that Sarah wrote? EXPLAIN YOUR THINKING!! THINK DEEPLY!
Respond in your math journal: Sam also wrote his first name 50 times. Did Sam write the “S” the same number of times as Sarah? Did he write the “A” the same number of times? What was the 137 th letter that Sam wrote? EXPLAIN YOUR THINKING!! THINK DEEPLY!
It’s your turn! Write your own question on an Awesome Algebra Game Card that is similar to the ones we just investigated. Try them out with a classmate and revise, if necessary.
