2D and 3D Sequences Project

Plan of Investigation

In this experiment I am going to require the following:

A calculator

A pencil

A pen

Variety of sources of information

Paper

Ruler

In this investigation I have been asked to find out how many squares

would be needed to make up a certain pattern according to its sequence.

The pattern is shown on the front page. In this investigation I

hope to find a formula which could be used to find out the number

of squares needed to build the pattern at any sequencial position.

Firstly I will break the problem down into simple steps to begin

with and go into more detail to explain my solutions. I will illustrate

fully any methods I should use and explain how I applied them to

this certain problem. I will firstly carry out this experiment on

a 2D pattern and then extend my investigation to 3D.

The Number of Squares in Each Sequence

I have achieved the following information by drawing out the pattern and extending upon it.

Seq. no. 1 2
