# 3.6: Stars and Moons

Can you continue the pattern shown below? In this concept, we will practice figuring out patterns and then extending them.

### Guidance

In order to continue patterns like the one with stars and moons shown above, we can use the problem solving steps to help.

- First,
**describe**what you see. - Second, figure out what
**your job**is. In these problems, your job will be to continue the pattern and fill in the empty cards. - Third, make a
**plan**. Decide how you will figure out and then continue the pattern. - Fourth,
**solve**. Fill in the empty cards with the correct number of stars and moons. - Fifth,
**check**. State the pattern you found and verify that it worked for all of the cards.

#### Example A

**Solution:**

We can use the problem solving steps to help us extend this pattern.

#### Concept Problem Revisited

We can use the problem solving steps to help us extend this pattern.

### Vocabulary

One type of ** pattern** is when the number of a certain object increases, decreases, or stays the same in a consistent way. In this concept, we saw patterns of stars and moons. With any

**you should be able to describe the**

*pattern***and how to get from one step of the**

*pattern***to the next.**
