Algebra: Sequences 7 - Sum of Arithmetic Series (A-level)

Algebra: Sequences 7 - Sum of Arithmetic Series (A-level)

This lesson builds on the previous lesson introducing arithmetic sequences and series. This lesson focuses on where and how to use the formula for finding the sum of a series. It does look at some more challenging questions and when to use one formula as opposed to another, i.e. looking at efficiency. The lesson comes with a starter, learning objectives, key words, plenty of teaching slides/examples, questions with answers and plenary. This is part of a bigger bundle on sequences / series, which can either be purchased with or without the additional A-Level lessons. The bundle comes at discount, and contains the following: 1. Introduction to Linear Sequences 2. Linear Sequences in Diagrams 3. Quadratic Sequences 4. Other Sequences and Problems 5. Fibonacci Sequence, Golden Ratio and Spiral (one of the reasons I become passionate about mathematics!!) 6. Arithmetic Sequences or Series 7. Sum of Arithmetic Sequences (A-Level) 8. Geometric Sequences or Series (A-Level) 9. Sum of Geometric Series (A-Level) 10.

Algebra: Sequences 6 - Arithmetic Sequences or Series (+ worksheet)

Algebra: Sequences 6 - Arithmetic Sequences or Series (+ worksheet)

This is an excellent first lesson introducing arithmetic sequences and series and is now included material for the new GCSE syllabus as well as for C1 at A-Level. This is an essential lesson to build understanding and become familiar with notation before moving onto more challenging A-Level content. The lesson comes with a starter, learning objectives, key words, plenty of teaching slides/examples, questions with answers and plenary. This is part of a bigger bundle on sequences / series, which can either be purchased with or without the additional A-Level lessons. The bundle comes at discount, and contains the following: 1.

Algebra: Sequences 5 - Fibonacci Sequence, Golden Number, Ratio & Golden Spiral (2 lessons)

Algebra: Sequences 5 - Fibonacci Sequence, Golden Number, Ratio & Golden Spiral (2 lessons)

This lesson / revelation was one of the cornerstones of why I became passionate personally with mathematics. I have used various slides from this PowerPoint to do maths assemblies as well. Pupils love this lesson and some of the slides are mind blowing. Love it !!! This builds on pupils understanding of sequences and does lend well to looking at series (different ways of writing rules or describing sequences). What I am saying is this lesson is brilliant in terms of adding the WOW factor as well as leading nicely into part 6 of the bundle/ series on sequences. The lesson comes with a starter, learning objectives, key words, plenty of teaching slides/examples, questions with answers and plenary.

Algebra: Sequences 4 - Other sequences and Problems

Algebra: Sequences 4 - Other sequences and Problems

This is the fourth lesson in the series. It looks at other sequences that are not linear or quadratic. These are becoming increasingly popular in GCSE exams as it stretches pupils understanding and not just their ability to pass exams. It also includes other sequences problems that don't neatly fit into the previous lessons. This is one of my favourite lessons to teach, because there are so many different types of sequences and it does make you think. The lesson comes with a starter, learning objectives, key words, plenty of teaching slides/examples, questions with answers and plenary.

Algebra: Sequences 3 - Quadratic Sequences (+ worksheet)

Algebra: Sequences 3 - Quadratic Sequences (+ worksheet)

This lesson is on quadratic sequences and goes through two methods to solve quadratic sequences. One method builds on their understanding of linear sequences as well, which is helpful. The other builds on their understanding of substitution and simultaneous equations. I teach both methods even though the majority of pupils will adopt the first method. I have found that giving pupils more understanding and methods, does pay dividend in the long run.
