Nth Term Quadratic

To find the nth term of a quadratic sequence students are taught to break down the formula into into quadratic, linear and constant components using a table.  An interactive whiteboard resource can be used to generate random questions with their solutions for additional practise and consolidation.
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
