MODELLING GROWTH PATTERNS

A significant part of mathematics is about modelling and understanding relationships among quantities that vary.

For example, as we create a list of the odd numbers, how does their sum change?

What is the relationship between the code, the output and the image below?

Modelling patterns using different representations helps us develop a rich conceptual understanding.
