# Geometric Sequences

Students learn how to work out the nth term of a geometric progression in the form arn-1.

As learning progresses, they consider progressions with fraction and negative common ratios.

##### Differentiated Learning Objectives
• All students should be able to find the common ratio of a geometric sequence.
• Most students should be able to find the common ratio and nth term of a geometric sequence.
• Some students should be able to solve compound percentage problems using geometric sequences.
