What's the math in this game?

As children extend the pattern, watch to see if they’re able to recognize the pattern’s repeating unit. What is a repeating unit? Patterns repeat in predictable ways, and a repeating unit is the part of the pattern that repeats over and over. One example is the “red, white” pattern of stripes on the United States flag: red, white, red, white, red, white. In this case, the repeating unit is “red, white.”
