Definition of Number Pattern

A number pattern is a list of numbers that follow a given rule.

For example, the sequence of numbers \(1,2,4,8,16,\dots\) doubles each time.

Another example is the sequence of numbers \(5,15,25,35,\dots\), which starts at \(5\) and jumps by \(10\) each time.

Each number in the number pattern represented by the blocks in the picture is a square number. The first one is equal to one squared, the second one is equal to two squared, the third one is equal to three squared, and so on.


The aim of this dictionary is to provide definitions to common mathematical terms. Students learn a new math skill every week at school, sometimes just before they start a new skill, if they want to look at what a specific term means, this is where this dictionary will become handy and a go-to guide for a student.
