Growing patterns with cubes and pattern blocks

We've been making growing patterns. First with multilink cubes:
We all plotted the graphs of our growing patterns on paper. We also looked at a couple of them on Desmos. We looked at Rhea and Maryam's pattern very carefully, and added a line onto the points.
We had a good look at how that pattern works. Mr Gregg asked "What do you do to get from x to y? Killian said, "Times by 2, then take away 1." We tried it out, and it works. Then we tried out the rule for other values of x:

As a follow up, we made growing patterns with pattern blocks. Can you see how these patterns work?
