Students will use the patterns they find in the first four steps to predict the 50th step.

Inspired by the website Visual Patterns.


  1. First, students count the squares in steps 1 through 4. They'll identify patterns and make a prediction about step 5.
  2. We look at the patterns, unveil the truth about step 5, and students try to predict step 10.
  3. We unveil the number of squares in step 10 and then challenge students to predict step 50!
  4. Students see if their predictions were correct and I reveal a final pattern as well as the name of this sequence of numbers.


The registration window closes on January 19th, 2024
