Here’s a game that will help to hone your ‘pattern spotting’ skills. I like it because each round is different and you have to work out the new pattern – just like you do when working with a new client. J
A pattern is predictable, not random. It has parts, repetition, and a system of organisation (how the parts are related to one another). And Penny Tompkins and James Lawley have noted three other fundamental requirements of patterns:
A couple of weeks ago, one of my Clean Language buddies, Adrian Goodall, sent me a link to a You Tube video called “Doodling in Math: Spirals, Fibonacci, and Being a Plant” (click the picture, left, to play). He sent it to me because he knew that, many moons ago, I was a maths teacher, and I still have a love of maths. And he was right to send it because I was riveted to the spot as I watched this incredible display of mathematical thinking that highlights the fabulous patterns in cones and flowers and artichokes. Part 2 is now available, and I can’t wait for part 3. As someone on You Tube has commented, whoever would have thought there could be a mathematical cliff-hanger?!
