Number Talk

Have you ever noticed patterns that emerge as numbers change? If so, you are engaging in pattern recognition, one of the four buckets of computational thinking.

Also, if you’ve ever identified a series of steps to complete a task, you are practicing algorithm design, another key bucket in computational thinking.

Engage with your students in both of the CT buckets in this CT Byte, where you explore a number talk using a visual image of eggs in an egg carton. 

There are two versions of this CT Byte. 

Version 1 is focused on the visual pattern and discussion.

Version 2 provides a hands-on approach to support student exploration and discussion.
