Welcome to the patterning math worksheets page at Math-Drills.com where you might not find quilts, but you will find patterns in math. Patterns can be found everywhere in mathematics. Students need to be able to recognize, identify and extend patterns to be able to function in mathematics. This page includes a selection of Patterning math worksheets to help you teach, support or learn patterning concepts.
General Use Patterning Printables
General use patterning printables including Pascal's triangle and pattern blocks cut outs.
Pascal's triangle has a number of applications in mathematics including patterning. One of the basic activities with Pascal's triangle is identifying the patterns in the triangle. More advanced students might relate the Fibonacci numbers derived from Pascal's triangle to population studies.
If you don't have the real thing, or your students use them as projectiles, print the pattern blocks below to help you teach patterning.
Picture Patterns Worksheets
Patterns with pictures worksheets with shape, size and rotation attributes.
The picture patterns worksheets below come in a number of themes and include various configurations of shape, size and rotation attributes. The worksheets include the answers mixed up at the bottom of the page, but you can easily exclude these if you don't want them to appear: simply fold that part up before you copy the page, cut it off of an individual print out, or size the window on your screen, so that part doesn't show. If you are looking for picture patterns related to holidays, please use the additional links.
Number Patterns Worksheets
Number patterns worksheets to help students recognize and continue patterns.
Number patterns are everywhere in mathematics. Skills in recognizing and creating number patterns will ensure students are able to add and subtract efficiently, recognize patterns in numbers, and handle more complex math activities that use patterns.
