Developing an Exam Question: Generalising Patterns A8

In this resource from the DfE Standards Unit, students will learn to: use past examination papers creatively, explore, identify, and use pattern and symmetry in algebraic
contexts, investigate whether a particular case can be generalised further, understand the importance of counter-examples, develop the ability to generalise from geometric patterns and devise and explore their own questions in this context. Most students will be familiar with looking for growth patterns in geometric patterns and many will be able to express these patterns verbally. However, it may be that they will find it more difficult to
express the nth term algebraically. (GCSE Grades A - F)
