Arithmetic Sequences

Lots of questions on finding the nth term of an arithmetic sequence (none of these questions refer to the summation). Answers are at the bottom of the sheet. Please let me know if you like it.

Cubic and Quadratic Sequence generator. Quadratic solver

Cubic and Quadratic Sequence generator. Quadratic solver

This can be used to generate quadratic and cubic sequences and uses difference table to show the step by step solution. It also has a quadratic solver which will give the nth term of a sequence. On the right hand side there are cells that can be copied and pasted to use the sequence.

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, keywords, plenty of teaching slides/examples, questions with answers and plenary. This is part of a bigger bundle or series, which can either be purchased with or without the additional A-Level lessons. NOTE: Feel free to browse my shop for more free and premium resources!

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, keywords, plenty of teaching slides/examples, questions with answers and plenary.

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 about 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, keywords, plenty of teaching slides/examples, questions with answers and plenary. This is part of a bigger bundle or series, which can either be purchased with or without the additional A-Level lessons. NOTE: Feel free to browse my shop for more free and premium resources!

Algebra: Sequences 4 - Cubic, Exponential and Other Sequences / Problems

Algebra: Sequences 4 - Cubic, Exponential and Other Sequences / 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, keywords, 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 and this does pay dividends in the long run. The lesson comes with a starter, learning objectives, keywords, plenty of teaching slides/examples, questions with answers and plenary.

Algebra: Sequences 2 - Linear Sequences in Diagrams / Patterns (+ resources)

Algebra: Sequences 2 - Linear Sequences in Diagrams / Patterns (+ resources)

This lesson builds on an excellent first lesson on linear sequences to build in linear sequences within patterns/diagrams and more real-life contexts around linear sequences. The goal here is to get pupils to build on their understanding from lesson one and to become more familiar with exam style questions. The lesson comes with a starter, learning objectives, keywords, plenty of teaching slides/examples, questions with answers and plenary. This is part of a bigger bundle or series, which can either be purchased with or without the additional A-Level lessons. NOTE: Feel free to browse my shop for more free and premium resources!

Algebra: Sequences 1 - Introduction to Linear Sequences (+ resources)

Algebra: Sequences 1 - Introduction to Linear Sequences (+ resources)

This is an excellent first lesson introducing linear sequences. Starting off with looking at the term to term rule and then quickly building into looking at the position to term rule or the nth term rule. This is a tricky topic for pupils and so there are quite a few teaching slides/ examples explaining what it is and why it is important. It goes onto looking at using the rule to work out another term further along in the sequence. The lesson comes with a starter, learning objectives, keywords, plenty of teaching slides/examples, questions with answers and plenary. This is part of a bigger bundle of sequences/series, which can either be purchased with or without the additional A-Level lessons.

BUNDLE Revision Foldables

BUNDLE Revision Foldables

*UPDATED 29th MARCH NOW INCLUDES NEW FOLDABLES Foldables can be used as a revision or summary exercise at the end of a topic. As the answers are hidden pupils can use these to ‘test’ themselves or ask someone else such as a parent to test them. This bundle includes 12 foldables and I do add to it so its worth checking back. Follow NumberLoving for regular updates on resources, so you know when to re-download! Thank you for looking, I hope colleagues find the resources useful in the classroom.

Rich task: Finding the mean from a grouped table discovery

Rich task: Finding the mean from a grouped table discovery

Students will discover for themselves how to find the mean from a grouped table. They will then get lots of practice with it whilst trying to find the patterns in each puzzle in the collection. They are very rich tasks, with a low entry point (students only need to know how to find the mean of a set of numbers) and an extremely high ceiling (involving sequences and series). Very easy to differentiate for different abilities (either skip pattern 10 or add the brainbox questions). The task ends with a paired activity where students create their own patterns.

Cubic Sequences and Geometric Sequences

Cubic Sequences and Geometric Sequences

To be used with a top set class but a starting cover of Cubic and Geometric sequences following the new 9-1 GCSE spec. Not an in-depth lesson however covers cubic sequences (from applying quadratic sequence skills) and then geometric which is fairly self-explanatory I should imagine. An NQT so all feedback welcomed! Thanks

C2 Sum to Infinity: Height of a pyramid.

C2 Sum to Infinity: Height of a pyramid.

This is an extension activity where students make and A3 and an A5 frustum pyramid. After measuring the heights of the 2 frustums they use the sum to infinity formula to calculate the height of a full pyramid made of infinite frustums. It worked really well with my year 12's but for the activity I only gave them the link to the video and the question, how could you calculate the height of a pyramid using frustums and they had to work the rest out. Hope it works for you. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

FTSE 100 data worksheet

FTSE 100 data worksheet

Please enable macros and ensure that the following add-ins are installed: Analysis Toolpak and Analysis Toolpak VBA (this can be done by going to Tools, then add-ins when in Excel) This program models the fluctuations of the FTSE 100 or Woodfine's 10 (all prices move according to a given sequence type). Students are to choose several companies to invest in and watch how their share prices fluctuate. A great lesson activity as a competition or linked with sequences.
