Others, frustrated by lack of direction or insecure about process, will find the activities in this course guiding them towards success. With just a little help, every student can make some significant discoveries about mathematics. The purpose of this course is to introduce you to the important role patterns play in mathematics. Patterns unlock the world of mathematics. This course provides useful resources and strategies for teachers who would like to help students recognize patterns and use them to make discoveries.
