This episode of GED Connection takes a look at patterns and shows how to solve problems by looking for constant relationships. It also takes a look at how to display solutions on a coordinate plane. The program starts out by looking at the kinds of patterns and how to look for co mmon threads within patterns. It then explains how to plot points on a grid and defines such terms as an ordered pair, x-axis, y-axis, origi n, solution set, and slope. It shows how to graph an equation and how to compare one equation to another by looking at graphs. This episode explains that the ability to recognize patterns is a math skill. When you get stuck on a problem look for patterns that can help you find so lutions, and look for patterns among solutions to see the bigger pictu re.
