“A minute for Mathematics”. An Experience of Fun, Learning and Outreach Through the Exploration of Numeric Patterns

Romy Adriana Cortez Godinez

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.

Key words: number patterns, games and disclosure.
