A child is pushed to decipher the repeating pattern in an array of blocks. The kindergartener considers several of the blocks’ attributes before finalizing an answer. Then he attempts to continue the pattern on his own.

Focus on the Child videos are taken from one-on-one interviews with individual children. The interviews are designed to elicit evidence of children’s mathematical thinking. They are not teaching episodes or formal assessments.
