Number Sequences

Source: activemaths
We had great fun today playing with number sequences. We used these steps to help us work out the missing numbers in a sequence:

1. Are the numbers going up or down?

2. By how much each time?

For example,

3, 6, 9, 12, __, __

1. The numbers are going up.

2. The numbers are going up by 3 each time.

3. 12 + 3 = 15, so 15 is the next number.

4. 15 + 3 = 18, so 18 is the next number.

Try this fun game to practise number sequences. If you click on the picture it will take you to the website with the game. Remember to check with an adult before playing any other games.
