Abstract. This paper shows an experience of popularization of mathematics
through the exploration of numeric patterns with concrete material; it is based
on games benefits (De Guzman, 2007) and on the use of inductive reasoning
to construct generalizations (Osorio, 2012; Cañadas, Castro y Castro, 2008). The
results reveal the use of strategies in the search for patterns, collaborative work and motivation toward math. It is concluded that the proposal is a valuable
scenario for the purposes of generalization and dissemination of science.
