Sequences and Series
Sequence Tiles requires students to define a position to term rule for a sequence and is extended to iterative sequences, using the set of cards given. Students have to decide the nature of their sequence: convergent and divergent increasing, decreasing, oscillating or periodic.
In Geoarithmetic sequences students are required to choose two numbers between zero and one and then generate a sequence by following a series of instructions. Students have to analyse the sequence formed, describe the nth term and speculate as to what wouls happen if the initial numbers are altered.
When does Sn = Un ? asks students to consider when does the nth term of a sequence equal the sum of the sequence. Students consider what happens when the number of terms in the sequence is altered and when the nature of the sequence is altered.
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
