In Student/Parent Resources, Year 7

Level: Year 7

Author: Leanne McMahon


This unit investigates the idea of representing patterns algebraically in the Year 7 classroom. According to the Australian Curriculum, by the end of Year 7, students should be introduced to the concept of variables as a way of representing numbers using letters. They should also be able to create algebraic expressions and evaluate them by substituting a given value for each variable. This series of lessons/ideas gives physical patterns and explains the 5 ways of representing these patterns:

  1. As a diagram
  2. In a verbal description
  3. As a chart
  4. As an algebraic formula
  5. In graphical form
