Sequence Graphs

Published on 10/12/2009

Activity Overview

In this activity, students will work with both arithmetic and geometric sequences. Formulas will include both explicit and recursive forms.

Before the Activity

  • Students will "see" the terms of a sequence, and will determine if it is arithmetic or geometric (linear or exponential).
  • Students will answer some self- check questions to determine their level of understanding.
  • A handout may be provided for students to record some of their observations or to take notes from the class discussion.
