Unformatted text preview: great way for students to be prepared in their middle or high school math classes. It builds a solid foundation for more complicated work later on when dealing with algebraic equations. There are a few examples of how math is the study of patterns. The Fibonacci sequence, for instance, shows that a person needs to figure out the sequence before moving on the next number and continuing that sequence. Additionally, when students get to their later years in math, he/she learns that Geometry is the study of shapes. Shapes also go hand in hand with patterns. Algebra is the manipulation of unknown quantities in equations, whereas Trigonometry shows the relationships between graphs and equations. All of these areas of math involve patterns. When a child is moving up the ladder in school, he/she will be introduced to these different subject areas. Having a firm, solid grasp of patterns will help in each of these areas....
