Diﬀerent Types of Pa1erns : Number Pa1erns

• A list of numbers that follow a

certain sequence or pa4ern.
• For example: What should be the
next number in this sequence?
• 5 10 13 26 29 58 61 ___

•  What should be the next number in this sequence?

•  5 10 13 26 29 58 61 ___
A. 128 B. 64 C. 125 D. 122

Numbers are alterna(vely mul(plied by 2 and increased
by 3
5 × 2 = 10
10 + 3 = 13
13 × 2 = 26
26 + 3 = 29
29 × 2 = 58
58 + 3 = 61
61 × 2 = 122

Pa1erns in Nature

• There are millions of pa4erns that

are found in our environment.
• These pa4erns occur in diﬀerent
forms and in diﬀerent contexts.
• They can be modelled
mathema(cally. Some example are
symmetries, trees, spiral, waves,
tessella(ons, stripes, meanders,
cracks, and many more.

Golden Ratio
CONCEPT: A line is divided into two sec(ons containing a unique
property such that the ra(o between the bigger segment and the
shorter segment should be equal to the ra(o between the line and its
bigger segment <h4p://www.scipress.org/journals/forma/toc/

Idea: Set any segment as 1.
