Maths Sample

Term 3 Maths Sample

WALT: To find patterns and describe them using rules.

Description: For maths this term we have been learning a range of strategies to help us solve algebra problems.

Task:  Make a short movie or poster to prove that you have achieved your maths goal.


  • Show, explain, prove your goal and how you did it
  • Clear message
  • Two questions to show your learning
  • Correct answer

The houses: The first pattern is made out of 6 sticks. The 2 pattern is made out of 10 sticks. The 3 patten is made out of 16. Because you are adding five each time it is n for number of pattern (n x 5)+1 you plus one for the saved line. So we want the 11 pattern so (11 x 5)+1=56

Octagon: The 1 pattern has 8 sticks the next one has 15 sticks the next 21.
You are adding 7 + the shared line so (n x 7)+1
Lets say that we want the 24 pattern so that would be (24 x 7)+1=53

  1. What are you most proud of and why?
    I like the way that I put brackets around the bit you do first.

  1. What challenged you the most and why?
    I felt in the pit when I was working out the second one

  1. Next time, what is a goal you can work towards?
    Making a movie and keeping more focused.

Feedback/Feedforward: Great work Bella! I like the way you told the reader why you need to add one. Maybe next time you could explain why you like the way you put the brackets round the bit you do first.
