#### Transcript of Nth term of linear sequences

Write an expression for the number of squares in pattern number n.

Explain how this can be found without writing down a sequence.
Nth term of linear sequences
Starter
Nth term of a linear pattern
How many different ways can you show this sequence has an nth term of 2n + 1?
Linear patterns
Why is this pattern linear?
Find the nth term of linear sequences and patterns.
Write an expression for the number of squares in pattern number n.

2n

Explain how this can be found without writing down a sequence.

The number of squares in each row is equal to the pattern number, and there are two rows.
Starter
How many squares would be in pattern number n?

How many ways can we show the expression for the nth term?
Linear patterns
Why is this pattern linear?
How many squares would be in pattern number n?
3n + 1
How many ways can we show the expression for the nth term?
n columns of 3, plus 1 square
OR
1 row of (n + 1) plus 2 rows of n
OR

1 L shape of 4 squares, plus (n - 1) columns of 3
OR the graph has gradient 3
and starts 1 square up
4 7 10 13
It goes up by 3 every time
OR
The graph is a
straight line
Nth term of a linear pattern
How many different ways can you show this sequence has an nth term of 2n + 1?
The sequence is 3, 5, 7, 9 which is 2, 4, 6, 8, (2n) add 1 (2n + 1).
Each pattern starts with 1 square and adds n lines of 2.
Each pattern starts with the original 3 squares, and add (n - 1) lines of 2.
The top row is n + 1 and the bottom row is n.
The graph goes up 2 squares, starting with 1.
