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 18th letter be if Sarah continues the pattern? Explain. 

Work with a partner to discuss and answer each question. Work hard and do your best!  *Students will work on copies of Mathematician Journal p. 5 with partners.

THINK DEEPLY! Respond in your math journal: Sarah was really bored one afternoon and wrote her name 50 times. What was the 137th letter that Sarah wrote? EXPLAIN YOUR THINKING!!
