How to Spot Patterns in Data? When examiners have to test a student's IQ level, they make the students solve number patterns. It is due to these reasons the kids are taught about number patterns at a very young age. Every numeric data set follows a specific pattern and identifying the hidden patterns can help students excel in their IQ tests. Every number in a data set is connected to its preceding number which creates a pattern in a data set. Step 1: Work out the pattern between the first three numbers - You can identify the pattern between three numbers by applying all four basic arithmetic operations such as addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. Make sure you start with addition first. Check if it satisfies the relationship between the first and the second term, then between the second and the third term. Step 2: Validate the Relationship - If you can find out which operation is connecting the three numbers, you can then easily identify the value by which the number is increasing or decreasing. Once you have found out the relationship between the first three numbers, apply the relationship on any three consecutive numbers. You can randomly select the numbers. If even these numbers satisfy the relationship, you have found out the pattern. If it does not satisfy the pattern, you need to revisit the first three terms and see which other operations satisfy their relationship. These worksheets and lessons help us begin to make sense of data sets and begin to analyze what they can tell us.

Homework Sheets

These were very difficult for me to dream up. My head hurt after these.

  • Homework 1 - There are 15 staff workers in a shop. There are 3 groups of workers. Each group has 5 members.
  • Homework 2 - Troy, Brio and Rose are starting a race. They ran the same distance but their times are different. At what pace did they run at? Calculate their miles per min.
  • Homework 3 - Amy started 9 projects over three days. On day 1 she takes 6 hours, on day 2 she takes 7 hours and on 3 day she works for 5.30 hours to complete the projects. Each day she completed 3 projects.



Practice Worksheets

I could find zero references to work off of with these. The standard really runs in a new direction.

  • Practice 1 - Ali, Lex and Joe walk daily. Ali can burn 210 calories in 25 minutes by walking at a speed of 4 miles per min. Lex can burn 200 calories in 22 minutes by walking at a speed of 3 miles per min.
  • Practice 2 - Henry buys items over three days for $717. The table shows the prices of items he bought on Monday, Thursday and Saturday.
  • Practice 3 - Stefan and Paul had a contest to see who could draw a Justin Beiber cartoon the fastest over the period of one day. Stephen made 20 drawings in two hours and Paul took 1 hour to make 35 drawings.



Math Skill Quizzes

After students complete the quiz they are pros with input/output charts.

  • Quiz 1 - What is the speed of A and B if, A moves 45 meters in 12 seconds and B moves 35 meters in 10 seconds.
  • Quiz 2 - 3 different planes fly into Newark Airport. Who reached the airport the fastest?
  • Quiz 3 - Complete the number per min column of the chart.
