1+1
1+2
2+3
3+5
5+8
8+13=21

It's just a different style of sequence.

this one is quite a common feature (Fibonacci code), so worth making it clear to your child. Others are runs of squares, cubes (1, 8, 27 etc) as well as sequences where every other number is added / doubled whatever. Generally these are easy to spot since the run will have to be longer to accommodate 2 strings of numbers.

It is worth investing in a Method & Technique book to gain some guidance on the possible variations in each question type. Knowing what to look for can save a lot of time.

such a shame, but pretty true. Horribly competitive but if it's any comfort, I reckon some of it also stems from people not wanting to be judged for doing it, or to have people mutter, "she thinks her child is up to it??" A very sensitive time all round! Keep on asking away, I'm getting to the stage of kind of missing it

Milla,

I think we are all missing the thrill of the chase which is why there are questions about car parks in Westerham and chewing gum on carpets.
