Number Patterns with Negatives Worksheets
Number patterns provide great practice for learning multiples or recognizing logical relationships between numbers in a sequence. The prior sets of worksheets dealt with positive numbers, and were a great introduction to simple patterns that could be expressed easily as increasing integers.
Once students have been introduced to negative numbers, number patterns that move across zero and into the realm of negative numbers are a great way to reinforce these concepts. In many ways, these patterns can be related easily to number line problems involving negative numbers.
Practice with these worksheets will reinforce negative number concepts and also prepare students for standardized tests that incorporate number patterns as a key math skill.
