Help your class look for patterns as they create their own arithmetic and geometric sequences. Engage learners with an introductory discussion on sequences and use the applet to let them explore how sequences are formed. Teachers might consider beefing up the included worksheet before using the applet.
Twenty-eight problems, two pages, and an answer key all related to number patterns, recursive formula, and arithmetic sequence. Leaners find the next number in the pattern or sequence and determine the arithmetic formula to go with the pattern. 
In this arithmetic and geometric progressions worksheet, students solve and complete 8 different types of progression problems. First, they determine whether each progression is arithmetic, geometric, or neither. Then, students find the sixth and twentieth terms and the sum of the first 10 terms of each sequence.
Learners who view this video should gain a better understanding of the difference between a geometric sequence and an arithmetic sequence. The video includes an example of each, with step-by-step instructions on how to figure out which is which. The lecturer explains that you need a common ratio for the sequence to be geometric and a common difference for the sequence to be arithmetic.
2, 4, 6, 8, who do we appreciate? Do the numbers in this sequence make it an arithmetic sequence? Watch this video and find out.
Students investigate modular arithmetic and how to use it to solve real world problems. In this modular arithmetic instructional activity, students use computers to work on modular arithmetic after a teacher guided instructional activity. They complete guided practice and independent practice by completing the associated worksheets.
Find the sequence of an equation with your math super stars. They differentiate between arithmetic and geometric sequences and then calculate the sum of finite and infinite sequences.
Students explore the concept of arithmetic series and sequences. In this arithmetic series and sequence instructional activity, students compare arithmetic sequences and series. Students solve arithmetic series and sequence word problems.
Students explore the concept of modular arithmetic and cryptography. In this modular arithmetic and cryptography lesson, students use applets to explore modular arithmetic using a clock and Caesar Ciphers. Students exchange their ciphers with another student. Students solve their partner's message.
Students investigate modular clock arithmetic and cryptography. They perform basic operations in modular (clock) arithmetic and encode and decode messages using simple shift and affine ciphers.
Eighth graders explore sequences. They discuss the difference between an arithmetic sequence and a geometric pattern. Students participate in workstation activities where they determine arithmetic or geometric patterns and predict the sequence.
Students perform basic operations in modular (clock) arithmetic. Students encode and decode messages using shift and affine ciphers. Students apply their multiplication, division, addition, and subtraction skills.
In this arithmetic sequences worksheet, students find the indicated term for a given arithmetic sequence. They identify the means in a sequence and complete statements for sequences. This one-page worksheet contains 26 problems.
In this arithmetic sequences activity, students find the indicated term of a given arithmetic sequence. They write an equation for the nth term of a sequence and determine the mean of the sequence. This one-page activity contains 26 problems.
Students model formulas for rectangles and squares. In this area, arithmetic and algebra lesson plan, students explore the formula for the area of squares and rectangles. They use squares to model the formula for the area and identify binomials.
In this algebra worksheet, students perform operations using arithmetic and geometric sequences and series. They find the sum, missing and repeated terms. There are 22 problems
Students practice single operation arithmetic ranging from single digit addition to long division of decimals or real numbers using Graphit. They use data sets and rules to graph ordered pairs.
In this Algebra II/Pre-calculus worksheet, students solve problems that involve arithmetic series and infinite geometric.  Students determine the partial sums of a geometric series. The three page worksheet contains forty-six problems.  Answers are not provided. 
Sal solves an interesting question in this video from a college entrance exam in India that requires one to use knowledge of arithmetic progressions, trigonometric identities, and algebra. He works through solving the problem in a step-by-step fashion by talking through his thought process in order to help one follow the solution as well as understand why certain steps are taken.
