TEKS Standards and Student Expectations
A(12) Number and algebraic methods. The student applies the mathematical process standards and algebraic methods to write, solve, analyze, and evaluate equations, relations, and functions. The student is expected to:
A(12)(D) write a formula for the nth term of arithmetic and geometric sequences, given the value of several of their terms
Given a pictorial or tabular representation of a pattern and the value of several of their terms, the student will write a formula for the nth term of a sequence.
What strategies can be used to think about how to organize data?
How is a geometric sequence different from an arithmetic sequence?
- Additive Relationship
- Multiplicative Relationship
