What's the math in this game?

Young children are just beginning to understand that a pattern is something that repeats. When you have a pattern, the same unit occurs over and over (for example, square, triangle, square, triangle). When children play with patterns, help them see the pattern's repeating unit. For example, "Our pattern goes blue, green, red, blue, green, red, blue, green, red. What's our repeating unit? It's blue, green, red!"
