Fibonacci and Other Sequences

Fibonacci is an interesting sequence that forms some unique patterns. Learners explore sequences that do not have the typical arithmetic and geometric patterns. They identify the pattern and find the next consecutive terms. Addtitionally, they have the opportunity to match a quadratic pattern to the function it represents.
