Lesson

Being able to find the number that we are skip counting by can help us find missing numbers. Let's give it a try.

Write the next number in the pattern:

8,10,12,⬚,⬚,⬚

Worked Solution

Let's look now at how we can continue patterns to find missing numbers.

Complete the pattern below.

20,⬚, 44,⬚

Worked Solution

Idea summary

To find the pattern, think about how the numbers are changing- are they getting bigger or smaller? Then you can work out the missing values.

generalises properties of odd and even numbers, generates number patterns, and completes simple number sentences by calculating missing values
