Students find common ratios of geometric sequences on a spreadsheet. Using this data they create scatter plots of the sequences to determine how each curve is related to the value of the common ratio. Students then generate geometric sequences on a spreadsheet and develop a formula to find any term of the sequence.
In this college level Calculus worksheet, students examine sequences to determine if they are increasing, decreasing, or non monotonic. Students find the sum of series and determine if they diverge. The one page worksheet contains twenty-one problems. Answers are not provided.
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.
