## Patterns

We've seen how patterns can be found in fractions, and now we're ready to become detectives and find some more patterns. We're going to look at patterns with objects, number lines, and numbers, so come along and see if you can find the patterns.

Remember!

When we are looking for a pattern in fractions, if our denominator (the number on the bottom of the fraction) doesn't change, then we can check the numerator (on top of the fraction).
