Students learn about finding the nth term of a sequence. During the lesson they are taught how to break a sequence down to find a position to term formula.

At the start of the lesson they recap finding the terms of a sequence and using Venn diagrams. In the main part students learn how to find the nth term of a sequence using a table of results. At the end of the lesson students are challenged to find the nth term of a picture sequence.

**Differentiated Learning **Objectives

- All students should be able to find the nth term of a linear sequence in the form n ± a.
- Most students should be able to find the nth term of a linear sequence in the form an ± b.
- Some students should be able to find the nth term of a simple quadratic sequence.
