Shifting pattern

I have a new Sun EZ Sport CX with 24 gears. What is the shifting pattern going from 1 to 24? I can't seem to find a diagram. I've been playing around while riding, but would like to see a diagram
Crank: FSA 335 170x52/42/30
Freewheel: Sram 11-32 8-speed
Thanks for your patience with this newbie!

The Sheldon Brown link is a great way to find a ton of bicycling information. Is there ever a reason to shift a bike's gears from lowest to highest , in sequence? Maybe sometimes, but not usually.

Thanks for the info! After determining the cog sizes on my Sram 11-32, I went to sheldon's website and found my answer. Great website!
