In this assessment, the cube version of Naruto’s Might Guy (マイト・ガイ), called Cube Might Guy, needs some help exploring some patters! Students are asked to use isometric dot grids to draw hollow square frames, rectangular hollow frames, hollow cubes, and hollow cubic frames. Based on those drawings, students will find, describe, and verify those patterns.

A factor, also called a divisor, of a natural number is a number that divides the number without any remainder. For example, the factors of 8 are 1, 2, 4, and 8, because when 8 is divided by either of these numbers, there is no remainder. In this assessment, students investigate positive factors of natural numbers, exploring patterns in the number of factors and the number of odd vs. the number of even factors.

In this assessment, students investigate the number of cubes required to make staircases of different dimensions and types when they are drawn on an isometric grid. Starting with guided questions, they are to draw staircases and recognize patterns in the number of cubes required to make them. Then, as the staircases become more complex, so do the patterns to find the number of cubes required for them.

In this assessment, students need to recognize and apply certain properties of exponents and powers to successfully complete the investigation, as well as apply spatial reasoning and logical thinking. The final outcome of determining a general rule to predict the survivor’s position with any number of soldiers in the circle need not be expressed algebraically, but students will need to provide a clear description of their general rule and demonstrate verification of their results.

Parallel and perpendicular lines have algebraic rules within the structures of their equations, both in the standard form and gradient-intercept form. This investigation asks students to model straight lines on the cartesian plane and then explore the patterns within coefficients of the variables for the two forms of the equations.
