 Standard 8.Understands and applies basic and advanced properties of functions and algebra
  Level II [Grade 3-5]
   Benchmark 1
Recognizes a wide variety of patterns (e.g., basic linear patterns such as [2, 4, 6, 8 . . .] ; simple repeating and growing patterns) and the rules that explain them
    Knowledge/skill statement 6
Recognizes the rules that explain simple patterns
Related assessment item(s):
     Describes rule for decreasing pattern (T1)
Identify the relationship that exists between each ordered pair (T2)
Determine the rule used to create the relationship given (T1)
Determine the rule used to create the relationship given (T1)

Performance expectation(s):
    Constructs or explains a rule that can generate the terms of the pattern or sequence (P)

Extends alinear pattern by its rule (S1)

3.OA.9 Identify arithmetic patterns (including patterns in the addition table or multiplication table), and explain them using properties of operations. For example, observe that 4 times a number is always even, and explain why 4 times a number can be decomposed into two equal addends.

4.OA.5 Generate a number or shape pattern that follows a given rule. Identify apparent features of the pattern that were not explicit in the rule itself.
For example, given the rule “Add 3” and the starting number 1, generate terms in the resulting sequence and observe that the terms appear to
alternate between odd and even numbers. Explain informally why the numbers will continue to alternate in this way.

5.OA.3 Generate two numerical patterns using two given rules. Identify apparent relationships between corresponding terms. Form ordered pairs consisting of corresponding terms from the two patterns, and
graph the ordered pairs on a coordinate plane. For example, given the rule “Add 3” and the starting number 0, and given the rule “Add 6” and the
starting number 0, generate terms in the resulting sequences, and observe that the terms in one sequence are twice the corresponding terms in the other sequence. Explain informally why this is so.
