Students learn how to generate and describe sequences on a term-to-term and position-to-term basis. Learning progresses from plotting and reading coordinates in the first quadrant to describing geometric sequences using the nth term.
use simple formulae
Pupils need to be able to use symbols and letters to represent variables and unknowns in mathematical situations that they already understand, such as:
In this lesson there are five grade 8 and 9 maths problems for higher ability students.
