Copy the dot pattern below onto your own paper.

$\array{ \begin{array}{c c c c c} \bullet & \bullet \\ \bullet\\ \bullet & \bullet \\ \end{array}\\ \text{Figure 1} }$

$\array{ \begin{array}{c c c c c} \bullet & \bullet & \bullet \\ \bullet \\ \bullet\\ \bullet & \bullet & \bullet \\ \end{array}\\ \text{Figure 2} }$

$\array{ \begin{array}{c c c c c} \bullet & \bullet & \bullet & \bullet\\ \bullet \\ \bullet\\ \bullet\\ \bullet & \bullet & \bullet & \bullet\\ \end{array}\\ \text{Figure 3} }$

1. Draw the $4$th, $5$th, and $6$th figures.

2. How is the pattern changing?

Studying the figures above, can you spot how they each change?

Each new figure gains three dots. Can you draw figures 4, 5, and 6?
