Patterns

Number Pattern for Class 1 Math

This discussion will allow the learners to identify the number pattern in their surroundings. Also, the student will determine the number patterns and alphabetical patterns etc.

Also, the students will learn to

  • Identify the number patterns and patterns using letters and numbers only.
  • Construct and continue the increasing number pattern and decreasing number pattern.

Each concept is explained to class 1 maths students with examples and illustrations, and a concept map is given at the end to summarize the idea. At the end of the page, two printable number pattern worksheets with solutions are attached for students to practice. Download the worksheets and assess your knowledge.

Learning About pattern

We have seen the pattern with shapes or objects. Now let’s see patterns with numbers and alphabets.

There are different patterns:

  1. Pattern for Alphabets Only

    For example:

    Extend the following pattern.

    Pattern for alphabets image only

    In the above pattern, letters are ordered alphabetically but skipping one letter in between.

    Pattern for alphabets image only

    So, to complete this sequence follows the same pattern.

    The completed sequence looks like this:

    Pattern for alphabets image only

    In the different sequences, such types of different patterns are there.

  2. Increasing Number Pattern

    For example :

    Complete the following sequence.

    Increasing number pattern images

    In the above sequence, the first number given is 3. Then adding 3 to 3, get the second number 6. Again adding 3 to 6, get the third number 9.

    So, to complete this sequence follows the same pattern.

    24 + 3 = 27 (Count three numbers after the number 24)

    27 + 3 = 30 (Count three numbers after the number 27)

    30 + 3 = 33 (Count three numbers after the number 30)

    33 + 3 = 36 (Count three numbers after the number 33)

    The completed sequence looks like this:

    Increasing number pattern images

    For example:

    Complete the following sequence.

    Leaf drawing images

    First number is 5. After counting the number 5, at the fifth step we get the number 10. It means adding 5 to the 5, we get the number 10. Again adding 5 to the number 10, we get the number 15.

    So, this is the pattern of the above sequence.

    15 + 5 = 20 (Count five numbers after the number 15)

    20 + 5 = 25 (Count five numbers after the number 20)

    25 + 5 = 30 (Count five numbers after the number 25)

    The completed sequence will look like this:

    Leaf drawing images
  3. Decreasing Number pattern

    For example:

    Complete the following sequence.

    Decreasing number patterns images

    Here subtract 2 from 25, get the number 23. Again subtract 2 from the number 23, get 21. This pattern follows throughout the sequence.

    Or if we observe, we got that the first number is 25, count backward by skipping one number in between we get the number 23.

    So, to complete this sequence count backward by skipping one number in between.

    The completed sequence will look like this:

  4. By Using Letters and Numbers

    For example:

    Complete the following sequence.

    Letters and number patterns images

    In the above sequence alphabets and numbers are written together in the correct order.

    So, to complete this sequence first write letters in correct alphabetical order.

    Letters and number patterns images

    Then add the numbers after 8.

    The completed sequence will look like:

    Letters and number patterns images

So, there are such types of different patterns with numbers and alphabets.

To complete any sequence, first, identify the pattern of the sequence.
