              Nth Term Linear

              Students learn how to create formula, called the nth term, to algebraically describe a numerical and picture arithmetic sequences.  As learning progresses students are challenged to derive the nth term for a fractional sequence by considering its numerator and denominator and separately.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to derive the nth term of a positive sequence.
              • Most students should be able to derive the nth term of a positive and negative sequence
              • Some students should be able to derive the nth term of a fractional sequence.

              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 […]
