# Recurrence Formulae

In this mathematics lesson students learn how to generate terms of a sequence using a recurrence formula.  As learning progresses they consider second term sequences as well as deriving possible formulae from a pattern.  The start of the lesson is used to recap the difference between geometric and arithmetic sequences by categorising various patterns into each group.
##### Differentiated Learning Objectives
• All students should be able to generate the first six terms of a recurrence sequence in the form Un+1
• Most students should be able to generate the first six terms of a recurrence sequence using the previous term.
• Some students should be able to generate the first six terms of a recurrence sequence in the form Un+2= aUn+1Un
