# Stage 1, mathematics, Year B – Unit 32

This sample Stage 1 unit develops student knowledge, skills and understanding about repeating patterns, arrays and different ways to present and communicate about data.

In this unit, 'Patterns have something that repeats over and over and over again', students are provided with opportunities to:

• recognise, name, create and extend various patterns
• identify that repeating patterns have a core that repeats over and over and over again
• identify, describe, organise and compare a variety of arrays
• communicate their understanding and thinking as they create and explore various patterns and arrays
• select appropriate methods to display and interpret data.
