Create pattern units of two to five squares and display them on the grid. Can you visualize how the grid will look when your pattern is repeated? Try these challenges:
  • Make different patterns with units of varying size. The units you create should all result in a pattern with vertical stripes when displayed on the grid.
  • Make a unit that will create a pattern with red squares appearing diagonally on the grid.
Create a pattern whose eighteenth square is green.
