Participants will experience various examples of how growing patterns modeled with toothpicks, two-color counters, and pattern blocks can be teamed with unexecuted number expressions to introduce and reinforce algebraic expressions to students in grades 3–9. Mathematical Practice 3 will be highlighted throughout the presentation.
