# Finding the nth Term of a Sequence

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.
