Local and Global Behavior

For Students 11th - 12th Standards
Create rules for numerical sequences. Pupils develop local rules and recursive rules for number sequences. The sequences are linear, quadratic, and cubic in nature. Scholars find that some local rules do not work, no matter where in the...
