A Magical Mystery Tour of Fascinating Sequences

When: Tuesday, March 28, 2023 | 7 p.m. Central time
Technology: TI-84 Plus family, TI‑Nspire™ CX Technology
Presenters: Ron Lancaster

In this session, our presenter will lead participants on an excursion into a world beyond arithmetic and geometric sequences where the patterns are full of mystery and intrigue.

The rules for these sequences are simple and easy to state, yet the patterns that emerge are full of surprises, moments of joy and baffling results.

These sequences can be used to provide students with an opportunity to practice basic skills, pose questions, make conjectures, test them using coding and prove them using mathematics. These sequences are well-suited for class warmups and they can be weaved into many lessons.
