Lesson  (...)
Lesson: Introduces students to arithmetic and geometric sequences. Students explore further through producing sequences by varying the starting number, multiplier, and add-on.

Lesson: Introduces students to the idea of finding number patterns in the generation of several different types of fractals.

Lesson: Shows students that number patterns exist in the Pascal's Triangle, and reinforces student's ability to identify patterns.

Lesson: Students learn to identify a variety of patterns using sequences and tessellations.

Activity  (...)
Activity: Step through the generation of the Koch Snowflake -- a fractal made from deforming the sides of a triangle, and explore number patterns in sequences and geometric properties of fractals.

Activity: Graph recursive functions by defining f(0)=C and defining f(n) based on f(n-1).

Activity: Step through the generation of Sierpinski's Carpet -- a fractal made from subdividing a square into nine smaller squares and cutting the middle one out. Explore number patterns in sequences and geometric properties of fractals.

Activity: Step through the generation of Sierpinski's Triangle -- a fractal made from subdividing a triangle into four smaller triangles and cutting the middle one out. Explore number patterns in sequences and geometric properties of fractals.
