Number Sequences (Year 3)

In KS2 Maths children will learn more about number sequences. This begins in Year Three with children recognising simple patterns, for example sequences increasing by 2, 3, 10 or 100 each time. They should also be able to recognise odd and even sequences of numbers.

Understanding number sequences is all about recognising patterns in the order of numbers. We can all see that in the order 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 the numbers are increasing by 1 each time. Therefore we have found the pattern. We know that the numbers are increasing by 1 so we know that the following number will be a 6. We just need to add 1 to 5.

How good are you at recognising patterns in number sequences? Can you find the rules for these number sequences in this quiz for 7-8 year olds?

  1. What are the next two numbers of the sequence? 3, 6, 9, 12
    The numbers are increasing in 3s
  2. If you add two odd numbers together the answer is always what?
    Even + even = even
    Even + odd = odd
    Odd + even = odd
    Odd + odd = even
  3. How do we know a number is even?
    All the even numbers can be divided by 2 and give a whole number
  4. What is the next number of the sequence? 20, 120, 220, 320
    The numbers are increasing by 100
  5. If you add two even numbers together the answer is always what?
    2 even numbers always make an even number but an even with an odd will make an odd number
  6. Which sequence is odd?
    All the numbers end in 1, 3, 5, 7 or 9 so it must be odd
  7. Can you find the rule of this sequence? 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30
    This sequence is the 5 times table
  8. Which is the next even number after 148?
    148 + 2 = 150
  9. Can you find the rule of this sequence? 3, 13, 23, 33
    Each number (except the first) is 10 higher than the one before it
  10. How do we know a number is odd?
    If odd numbers are divided by 2 there will be a remainder or fraction left over
