Middle Daughter is in 4th grade. A recent math assignment asked her to draw certain dots and make an observation about the pattern. Here’s the answer key:
4. (a) shows the pattern; (d) shows “Possible observations” that can be made: “Each group of dots can be divided into a square and a right triangle; the difference between the total number of dots in each pair of terms increases as the pattern continues.”
Here’s my daughter’s answer sheet:
Note her last sentence: “I observe that every term after term 2 looks like a Jawa barge.”
Really, I should say, that’s her daddy’s girl, as he’s the biggest Star Wars fan in the family. Still, take that math answer key! Let’s see you make a more astute observation!
