"You can see patterns in pretty much everything if you think about it." - Chris Blackford
This morning at drop-off, Margaret noticed the black and white pattern on her dad's shirt. As she was taking photographs of it, she noticed something else: The gingham pattern of squares was actually a series of overlapping vertical and horizontal lines. As they were discussing her observations, Margaret noticed the pattern in the links of his watch. Together they noticed and tried to identify the pattern in her raincoat, which was less straightforward. Margaret did notice the alternating patterns on her shirt and even on the bench. Later, when we revisited the raincoat, we still couldn't quite decipher the pattern, but we noticed new details--like some unicorns are standing, some galloping, some rearing. There are also pegasus, clouds, and hearts that didn't register initially. As Aletha showed us last week, on a larger field the pattern might be more clear. This one is still a mystery, but a great addition to our catalogue of knowledge about patterns.
