Lay your cards out like this. What patterns do you see?
1. Read only the ones digit on each card. Can you find a pattern when you count 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 using the ones digit? - left-hand column going from bottom to top, middle column going from bottom to top, right-hand column going from bottom to top
2. Read only the 10's digit. Top row - 0, 0, 0; Middle row - 1, 1, 1; Bottom row - 2, 2, 2 then a 3
3. Can you see the numbers in Six Speed! within Three Speed? 6, 12, 18, 24 - When you touch them in this order do you see their pattern?
4. Can you see the numbers in Nine Speed! within Three Speed!? 9, 18, 27 - When you touch them in this order do you see their pattern?
Did you find any more patterns? Can you lay your cards out differently and find more patterns? When you are done with this activity get out Four Speed and get ready for next week.
