How important is pattern recognition in Mathematics? Very I would think! My year 10’s have investigated Pascal’s triangle in some detail. They are now involved in finding patterns between square numbers and generalising their theorem’s using algebra.

Can you complete the following grid? What about your students?

What about placing the last three numbers in the grid below? Most people find this much more difficult, probably because of the way we have been conditioned to think!

## About webmaths

I have been teaching Mathematics in Victorian secondary schools for 30 years. I use the www to make my maths lessons better. I hope this blog will give other teachers some ideas to try in their own classes.

Hi,

interesting blog if I can say so.

I see that you are interested in Pattern recognition so I will give you link where you can find several books about it.

The present books are intended to collect representative researches around the globe focusing on low-level vision, filter design, features and image descriptors, data mining and analysis, and biologically inspired algorithms.

Books are free to download.
