Nth Term of Quadratic Sequences

 

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 n2+c
  • Most students should be able to derive the formula for a quadratic sequence in the form an2+c
  • Some students should be able to derive the formula for a quadratic sequence in the form an2+bn+c
