Geometric Sequences

Throughout this mathematics lesson students learn how to derive the nth term for geometric sequences in the form arn-1.  As learning progresses they consider progressions with fraction and negative common ratios.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to find the common ratio of a geometric sequence.
  • Most students should be able to find the common ratio and nth term of a geometric sequence.
  • Some students should be able to solve compound percentage problems using geometric sequences.
