CRA Description :
Pattern recognition and symbolic representation of relationships are fundamental skills in mathematics, but sophisticated patterns can be difficult to discern and write down. This assignment challenges students to determine identities that govern given number patterns, and then express the identities algebraically.
Key Concepts and Terms:
Students should be able to formulate and manipulate algebraic expressions and equations using algebraic (field) properties, concepts, procedures, and algorithms to combine, transform, and evaluate expressions (e.g., polynomials, rational expressions).
