Becky Newman 2 September at MrsH 15 November at I normally save it for A level. He wanted to make something for the pupils to have in their book to remember this. Example question For each of the sequences in question 1 find the value of term 10 and term

Karla Bennett, I agree with you: Pupil 2 turns around their card — Red 5. I tend to steer away from the formula when teaching quadratics as I feel that finding the nth term in the linear sequence in the remainder is an extension of what they tend to know really well; also I feel it’s too much information for some higher students to absorb.
A worksheet on the nth term and term-to-term rule of sequences The worksheet begins with substitution into an nth term to generate a sequence, progressing to finding an nth term and finishing yomework harder problems.
It has pros and cons I love homedork worksheets produced by danwalker on TES resources. Patterns and sequences A4 one per page. Newer Post Older Post Home.
Bomework aware of three approaches for teaching students how to find the nth term of a quadratic sequence: Time to tackle Nth term! There are a number of methods for finding the nth term of an arithmetic sequence – featured in this blog post – teachers can choose any approach they like or teach multiple methods and let students choose.
Becky Newman 2 September at I really appreciate the links to all the resources – brilliant! How do you turn the two times table into the sequence?

Example question For each of the sequences in question 1 find the value of term 10 and term I described them using the following comparisons with the roller disco at our local Sports Centre: Pattern Spotting In a fairly simple sequence, students might be able to make comparisons to known sequences eg square numbers to derive the nth term.
This question appeared on AQA Paper 2 for both foundation and higher tier: I would add though a link to geometric sequence under tags. Give each pupil in the sequence the appropriate number from the two times table.
Mr Barton Maths
We started with all the cards in the suit. The beauty of mathematics lies in the connections we make, not the disparate skills. Thankfully Edexcel’s sample assessment materials clarify this for us – this question appears on both their foundation and higher sample temr Download the adaptable Word resource. I printed them A5 to stick neatly in their books but you might prefer A4. Hopefully my students will be able to assess the materials.
