              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.

              Area of Compound Shapes

              To find the area of compound shapes students need to understand what the word compound means.  Therefore, I ask students to discuss in pairs a definition for the word compound and to extend it to include the shapes below.  As a result of their learning in science students agree that a compound can be defined […]
