How Fast Does it Grow?

     This morning we started off Friday the 13th, by playing a game in Math to practice our increasing patterns. In order to play, we rolled two dice, then decided which of the dice we should to start our pattern with. Our other dice determined how much our pattern would increase by. After five increases, the partner with the largest number earned a point.

 It didn’t take us long to discover that it is better to save our higher number for the increase rather than use it for our starting point!

Grade 3’s, imagine you just rolled a 1 and a 5. Which number would you use to start your pattern, and which would you use to increase your pattern? Why?
