Transcript of Defining Sequences

Defining Sequences
Starter
Two sequences are defined as

3n + 8
5n - 2

After which term does the second sequence become bigger than the first?

Linear Sequences
Find the nth term of this sequence:



3, 10, 17, 24, 31, ...
Linear Sequences (continued)
Find the nth term of this sequence:




26, 22, 18, 14, 10, ...
L.O. - To find the position-to-term rule for a sequence, and use this ability to find formulae.
5, 9, 13, 17, 21, ....


2, 8, 14, 20, 26, ....
18, 11, 4, -3, -10, ...

Two sequences are defined as

3n + 8 = 11, 14, 17, 20, 23,
26
, 29, 32, ...
5n - 2 = 3, 8, 13, 18, 23,
28
, 33

After which term does the second sequence become bigger than the first?
After the 6th term
Find a formula linking
the width of the pattern and the number of squares. -
S = 2w - 1

the width of the pattern and the perimeter of the pattern. -
P = 4w
Linear Sequences
Find the nth term of this sequence:



3, 10, 17, 24, 31, ...
= 7n - 4
7, 14, 21, 28, 35, ... = 7n
5, 9, 13, 17, 21, ....
= 4n + 1


2, 8, 14, 20, 26, ....
= 6n - 4
Linear Sequences
Find the nth term of these linear sequences
4 8 12 16 20 .... = 4n
6 12 18 24 28 .... = 6n
Linear Sequences (continued)
Find the nth term of this sequence:



26, 22, 18, 14, 10, ...
= -4n + 30 = 30 - 4n
-4, -8, -12, -16, -20, ... = -4n
18, 11, 4, -3, -10, ...
= -7n + 25
