Ladybug Patterns

**Ladybug Patterns** introduces students to the algebraic concept of growing patterns or functions. In this case, the dots on the ladybug change with age. Students may use the picture and a function table to analyze the pattern's growth and write a rule in words and/or variables/numbers.
- Download the Ladybug Patterns student handout.
- Download a blank Ladybug Patterns handout so that students can create their own original patterns to challenge their classmates.
- NOTE: teachers may use an overhead of the blank pattern handout to create additional patterns for students to analyze (e.g. double the age, 2 more than age, etc. )
