In this sequences and series activity, students complete seven activities covering arithmetic sequences, geometric sequences, and series.  Fully worked out examples, formulas, and explanations are included.
Learners investigate sequences and series numerically, graphically, and symbolically.  For this sequences and series lesson, students use their Ti-89 to determine if a series is convergent.  Learners find the terms in a sequence and series and graph them.  Students use summation notation to determine the sum of a sequence.
In this sequencing worksheet, students solve problems with sequences and series. They derive formulas to solve word problems and receive specific points for doing so. There are 8 questions with an answer key.
For this sequences and series worksheet, students find the sum of a given geometric series. They use sigma notation to express a geometric series. This one-page worksheet contains 12 problems.
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.
Learn to calculate the nth term of a sequence defined by an algebraic expression. They examine geometric sequences and series, relate geometric sequences to their explicit forms, find the partial sums of a sequence in a table, and determine if a geometric series is converging or diverging using a graphing calculator.
In this geometric sequence learning exercise, students find the next two terms of a geometric sequence. They identify the nth term and complete a sequence statement. Next, they find the geometric means of a given sequence. This one-page learning exercise contains 15 problems.
In this sequences and series worksheet, students solve 16 multiple choice problems. Problem sets change each time the worksheet is accessed. They cover a variety of sequences such as arithmetic and geometric sequences. The worksheet addresses sums of series (with sigma notation). Each problem includes a hint button. The worksheet is self-scoring.
In this sequence worksheet, students determine the sum of numbers in a sequence.  They evaluate an arithmetic sequence.  This seven-page worksheet contains detailed notes, examples, and 10 problems.
Students find patterns in a sequence.  In this sequences and series lesson, students use their calculator to find the sequence of partial sums.  They graph functions and explore convergent series.  Students approximate alternating series.
In this algebra worksheet, students solve sequences using the geometric mean for sequences and series. They have to find the next number in the pattern using the formula for geometric means. There are 23 problems to be solved.
In this Algebra II worksheet, 11th graders review sequences and series.  Students solve problems in order to determine the caption for a picture.
In this sequences and series worksheet, 10th graders solve and complete 13 different problems that include infinite geometric series. First, they find the sum of each infinite geometric series. Then, students find the first three terms of each geometric series. They also express each decimal as a rational number in a given form.
Students explore the pattern created by a sequence or series. In this geometry lesson plan, students relate the spread of a virus to the growth of exponential functions. They collect data as they analyze the sequence created by the growth.
This comprehensive unit on linear and exponential functions provides numerous clearly-written worksheets. Topics include graphing linear equations, solving systems of equations algebraically and by graphing, identifying the domain and range of a function, graphing exponential and linear equations, representing a function with a table, algebraically, and graphically, finding the intercepts of graphs, finding slope and rate of change, finding best-fitting line, comparing linear and exponential functions, creating functions, recursive formulas, arithmetic sequences and series, and sequences as functions.
Having a hint can really help. There are 5 multiple choice problems on this online interactive worksheet. The class works to find terms in a sequence given a sequence, or the common difference and one term, the number of terms in a series given the sum, first term, and common difference.
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 identify patterns found in nature. In this algebra lesson, students model situation in nature using fractals. They investigate biological geometric structures and draw conclusion based on geometric concepts.
Students read Nina Bonita by Ana Maria Machado. In this reading comprehension/ geography lesson, students recall various parts of the story and create a map of where the rabbit traveled throughout the story. They participate in group discussions about setting and observations of race intolerance, which is brought up in the story. This lesson includes ideas for extension activities.
Students explain the purpose of a photo essay, sequence a series of events, and explain the format in creating a photo essay, which includes a caption for each picture. They complete a photo essay as a creative activity.
