Recognize abstract patterns in number sequences
Finding the pattern in numbers is a skill that lays the foundation for data analysis abilities later. The numbers in these series range from simple addition or subtraction patterns (at the easy level) to rolling mixed computations (at the complex level). The highest level may prove to be a good challenge to students as far along as sixth grade. The worksheet can also be configured to ask the student to express the pattern in words. Problems tend to become more difficult towards the end of the worksheet.
