              Plotting Sequences on a Grid

              Students learn about plotting sequences on a grid.  A handout is provided to help students progress from finding the sequence to plotting it on a pair of axes.The start of the lesson is used to recap matching a sequence with its formula.  In the main of the lesson students learn how to plot the terms of a sequence their position in the sequence.  At the end of the lesson students try to match a sequence with its straight line graph.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to plot a linear sequence in the form f(n) = n ± a on a grid.
              • Most students should be able to plot a linear sequence in the form f(n) = an ± b on a grid.
              • Some students should be able to plot a non-linear sequence on a grid
