Nth Term Linear

Students learn how to create formula, called the nth term, to algebraically describe a numerical and picture arithmetic sequences.  As learning progresses students are challenged to derive the nth term for a fractional sequence by considering its numerator and denominator and separately.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to derive the nth term of a positive sequence.
  • Most students should be able to derive the nth term of a positive and negative sequence
  • Some students should be able to derive the nth term of a fractional sequence.
