In mathematics, the term "growing pattern" refers to a geometric structure or an arithmetic sequence that expands through the addition of an element to the pattern. A type of growing pattern, called a "linear growing pattern," increments or decrements by a constant diff...
Indices are a mathematical concept for expressing very large numbers. They are also known as powers or exponents. In the mathematical process of exponentiation, a base number is written alongside a superscript number, which is the index or exponent.
A number story is a short story that illustrates a math equation, making it easier for young students to understand the equation involved. For example, the equation 5+2=7 can be told as a story about five birds sitting on a tree that were joined by two more birds.
A mathematical concept is a general idea behind an equation, problem or formula in math. In contrast to a math fact, which must be committed to memory, a math concept explains why math works in a certain way.
