              Generating a Sequence

              Students learn how to generate sequences using the nth term formula.  As learning progresses they progress from generating linear sequences to quadratic and exponential sequences using the 'table' mode on a scientific calculator.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to generate a linear sequence from the nth term formula
              • Most students should be able to generate a quadratic sequence from the nth term formula.
              • Some students should be able to generate any sequence when given the nth term formula.

              How to Draw a Venn Diagram to Calculate Probabilities

              There are three common ways to organise data that fall into multiple sets: two-way tables, frequency diagrams and Venn diagrams.  Having blogged about frequency diagrams before I thought I would write about how to draw a Venn Diagram to calculate probabilities. Recapping Two-Way Tables This activity works well to review two-way tables from the previous […]
