Numerical generalising problems like Figure 3 can sometimes be problematic due to a lack of further specific assumptions and explicit contexts that describe how the terms should continue.
The idea behind these generalising problems is that students are expected to identify, recognise, extend and articulate the pattern.
Apart from knowing that the way in which students deal with generalising problems is due in part to the depiction of pattern in the task, little else is known about what and how other task features might affect students' abilities to express generality.
