Unknown 26 August at 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. In the following lesson my colleague, D, used this idea to develop the concept of Nth term with another class. Seema Amin 10 January at The worksheet begins with substitution into an nth term to generate a sequence, progressing to finding an nth term and finishing with harder problems. 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. Suitable for KS4 or upper KS3.
Give each pupil in the sequence the appropriate number from the two times table. Now what have a pair of roller skates got to do with number sequences? Thank you for creating a paper like this. But now we need to include a few weeks’ worth of sequences lessons in our GCSE schemes of work. Pupil 1 turns around their card — Red 3. As with any class mixed ability or not there were varying levels of progression in these lessons. Newer Post Older Post Home.
Until now it’s always been something we’ve taught for enrichment. What is the next number?

I find it very useful. Some tasty questions from a tough textbook exercise Hoework a student completes a sheet they just move to the next — there are no duplicate questions.
Becky Newman 2 September at Try this with other sequences and develop the idea of 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.
Explain that each person represents a term in a sequence, given by the headband. Unknown 26 August at This is what he came up with: I printed them A5 to stick neatly in their books but you might prefer A4.

Time to tackle Nth term! I would add though a link to geometric sequence under tags.
Or a mystery number? Keep me logged in. Also, do have a look at AQA’s resources for this topic – their recurrence relations activities are great.
Add 2 Which multiplication table has the same pattern? He wanted to make something for the pupils to have in their book to remember this.
A good selection of questions too. Issue headbands to four pupils.
Download the adaptable Word resource. Reveal the last number — Red 9. I described them using the following comparisons with the roller disco at our local Sports Centre: Unknown 12 June at As always, Resourcaholic is the place to find all updates.
Find the nth term formula – linear sequences
How do you turn the two times table into the sequence? I was a bit confused by the meaning of ‘Fibonacci type sequences’ because I thought that there was only one Fibonacci sequence and by definition it is 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, Give each pupil in the sequence the appropriate number from the two times table.
Quite a lot has been added to the higher tier. I love the worksheets produced by danwalker on TES resources.

R Choi Thank you for this great resource. This question appeared on Germ Paper 2 for both foundation and higher tier: Proudly powered by WordPress Theme: Pupils stand in number order. Give each pupil a different. The worksheet begins with substitution into an nth term to generate a sequence, progressing to finding an nth term and finishing with harder problems.
