The following activity sheets give your beginning students an introduction to patterns in mathematical operations.

Any number pattern follows a certain rule that is fixed and never changes. When you are trying to detect a pattern in a math sequence you will need to take your time. The first step to take is to look for an increase or decrease in value across the pattern. If an increase is involved addition or multiplication must be involved. If there is a decrease in value subtraction or division is to blame.

Your students will use these worksheets to practice filling in the blanks in number progressions according to the given operators. Calculators may be necessary for some of the larger progressions.
