Jordan's Scribe Post

First, we started with 3 patterns:Then we had to find the next 2 patterns, which were:
Then we had to make a T-Chart for the patterns we found...
the numbers in the "y" row start at 1 and go up by 2 each time..
the numbers in the "x" row start at 0 and go up by 1 each time..
to get "y," you have to multiply "x" by 2, then add 1
Algebraic expression: y = 2n+1
We started off with 3 different patterns this time... The 5 pictures looked like this:
(btw, the vertical lines through the strings are the cuts)
Followed by the T-Chart:
We found that the "y" row started @ 1 then increased by 3 each time
We found that the "x" row started @ 0 then increased by 1 each time
You have to multiply "x" by 3 then add 1 to get "y"
Algebraic Expression: y = (3n)+1
