How Many Will There Be? Pyramids
Students will use the patterns they find in the first three steps to predict the 50th step.
Inspired by the website Visual Patterns.
- Students will look for patterns and predict how many squares there will be at step 10.
- Next, they'll predict how many squares there will be at step 50!
- I reveal the answer (2,550) and propose the challenge of adding the first 50 odd numbers. (Psst, you can square 50).
