# NUMBERS IN GRIDS – Pattern, Colour, Multiples

Students use markers and coloured pencils to explore how multiples of two different numbers make patterns on a number grid.

## Supplies:

• Crayola Coloured Pencils
• Crayola Fine Line Markers

## Steps:

1
1. Work with 2 sets of multiples, for example multiples of 3 and 4.
2. Mark the squares that have common multiples, for example, common multiples of 3 and 4 are:
12, 24, 36, 48, 60, 72, 84 and 96
3. Choose a colour for the common multiples squares and fill them in.
4. Choose a different colour for each set of multiples, e.g.,
- multiples of 3 colour brown
- multiples of 4 colour blue
- common multiples colour yellow
2
1. Colour one set of multiples with marker.
2. Colour the other set with a contrasting colour of coloured pencil.
3
1. Create a different pattern for each of the 3 types of squares.
- multiples of 3
- multiples of 4
- common multiples
2. Use contrasting colours of marker to draw the pattern on top of the coloured squares.
3. Use a coloured pencil to lightly fill in all the background squares with one new colour.
