Students learn how to find the nth term of a quadratic sequence.

Later, as learning progresses, they find the nth term from the coordinates of a quadratic graph.

**Differentiated Learning Objectives**

- All students should be able to derive the formula for a quadratic sequence in the form n
^{2}+c - Most students should be able to derive the formula for a quadratic sequence in the form an
^{2}+c - Some students should be able to derive the formula for a quadratic sequence in the form an
^{2}+bn+c
