#### nth term of a decreasing arithmetic sequence

A task I used with more able Year 8 students. Students are given decreasing arithmetic sequences - but most of the terms are missing. They must first determine the missing terms, and then work out the nth term. The gaps that indicate missing terms are quite small, sorry, so you may want to get students to copy out the sequences into their books. You get 2 copies of the activity on one sheet of A4. Solutions are provided - the completed sequences and their nth terms are in separate documents.

#### Reasoning problem, working systematically - Find all possibilities for Homer's doughnuts

A fantastic reasoning activity that helps children improve their problem solving and ability to work systematically. The problem starts with 3 objects and moves on to four. There is also an opportunity for more able children to make predictions for 5 and 6 objects and then test their theories. Very able children may make connections such as once you find all the possibilities for one starting object, you can multiply this by the total number of objects for the number of possibilities altogether.

#### Sequences investigation (using square and hexagonal tile patterns)

There are 2 simple sequence investigations, one using square tiles and one using hexagonal tiles. Each investigation has an A4 worksheet to set out the problem and a PowerPoint presentation to go through the solution. There are also 2 extension investigations that involve square and triangular numbers. The method of using simultaneous equations to find a quadratic formula is shown in the accompanying Powerpoint along with a more visual approach. These investigations can also be used as examples after which you may ask students to create their own patterns with square/hexagonal tiles and find solutions to their own questions. To help students do this there is a sheet of other hexagonal tile sequences to give them some ideas.

#### Sequences

Exploring sequences through a series of big problems that encourage students to find multiple methods. There are additional questions to promote deeper thought and understanding around a new method or technique. We begin at finding the nth term and conclude with ‘is a term part of a sequence?’. I’ve removed resources used to practise and consolidate methods due to restictions but all content is freely available from corbettmaths.com and variationtheory.com

#### Sequences Search - using the nth term (Substitution)

This is similar to a resource already on TES that I really like (https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/gcse-maths-sequences-search-worksheet-6158880) but I wanted an activity that required more substitution into nth terms rather than pattern-spotting, so this is what I came up with. Students have to find the 1st, 2nd, 5th, 10th, 50th and 100th terms of sequences using the given nth terms. They cross off all of their answers in the grid above. For ease of marking, there will be 10 numbers left over in the grid after the activity is completed. Students should add these together, and if they’ve made no mistakes, they’ll get a total of 1000. Full solutions are still provided however!

At least a lesson’s worth of activities on the theme of quadratic sequences. Designed to come after pupils have learnt the basics (how to use and find an nth term rule of a quadratic sequence). Gives pupils a chance to create their own examples and think mathematically. There are four activities included: Activity 1 - given sets of four numbers, pupils have to order them so that they form quadratic sequences. Designed to deepen pupils understanding that the terms in a quadratic sequences don’t necessarily always go up or down. Activities 2 and 3 - on the same theme of looking at the sequences you get when you pick and order three numbers of choice. Can you always create a quadratic sequence in this way? What if you had four numbers? Could be used to link to quadratic functions. Activity 4 - inverting the last activity, can pupils find possible values for the first three terms and a rule, given the fourth term? A chance for pupils to generate their own examples and possibly do some solving of equations in more than one variable. Where applicable, worked answers provided.

#### Gauss's formula

A complete lesson on the theme of the formula for 1+2+3+…+n, looking at how the rule emerges in different scenarios. Activities included: Starter: A classic related puzzle - counting how many lines in a complete graph. After the initial prompt showing a decagon, two differing approaches to a solution are shown. These will help pupils make connections later in the lesson. This is followed by a prompt relating to the handshaking lemma, which is the same thing in a different guise. Pupils could investigate this in small groups. Main: A prompt for pupils to consider the question supposedly put to Gauss as a child - to work out 1+2+3+…+100. Gauss’s method is then shown, at which point pupils could try the same method to sum to a different total. The method is then generalised to obtain Gauss’s rule of n(n+1)/2, followed by a worksheet of related questions. These include some challenging questions requiring pupils to adapt Gauss’s method (eg to work out 2+4+6+…+100). Plenary: A final look at the sequence Gauss’s rule generates (the triangle numbers). Please review if you buy as any feedback is appreciated!

A complete lesson on patterns of growing shapes that lead to quadratic sequences. See the cover image to get an idea of what I mean by this. Activities included: Starter: A matching activity relating to representation of linear sequences, to set the scene for considering similar representations of quadratic sequences, but also to pay close attention to the common sequences given by the nth term rules 2n and 2n-1 (ie even and odd numbers), as these feature heavily in the lesson. Main: A prompt to give pupils a sense of the intended outcomes of the lesson (see cover image). An extended set of examples of shape sequences with increasingly tricky nth term rules. The intention is that pupils would derive an nth term rule for the number of squares in each shape using the geometry of each shape rather than counting squares and finding an nth term rule from a list of numbers. A worksheet with a set of six different shape sequences, for pupils to consider/discuss. The nth term rules have been given, so the task is to justify these rules by considering the geometry of each shape sequence. Each rule can be justified in a number of ways, so this should lead to some good discussion of methods. Plenary: Ideally, pupils would share their differing methods, but I’ve shown a few methods to one of the sequences to stimulate discussion. Printable worksheets (2) included. Please review if you buy as any feedback is appreciated!

#### Finding the nth term rule of a quadratic sequence

A complete lesson on finding the nth term rule of a quadratic sequence. This primarily focuses on one method (see cover slide), although I’ve thrown in a different method as an extension. I always cover linear sequences in a similar way and incorporate a recap on this within the lesson. Starter: To prepare for the main part of the lesson, pupils try to solve a system of three equations with three unknowns. Main: A recap on finding the nth term rule of a linear sequence, to prepare pupils for a similar method with quadratic sequences. Examples on the core method, followed by a worksheet with a progression in difficulty for pupils to practice. I’ve included two versions of the worksheet - a simple list of questions that could be projected, or a much more structured worksheet that could be printed. Worked solutions are included. A worked example of an alternative method, that could be given as a handout for pupils who finish early to try on the questions they’ve already done. Plenary: A proof of why the method works. I’d much rather show this at the start of the lesson, but in my experience this usually overloads students and puts them off if used too soon! Please review if you buy as any feedback is appreciated!

A complete lesson on using an nth term rule of a quadratic sequence. Starter: A quick quiz on linear sequences, to set the scene for doing similar techniques with quadratic sequences. Main: A recap on using an nth term rule to generate terms in a linear sequence, by substituting. An example of doing the same for a quadratic sequence, followed by a short worksheet for pupils to practice and an extension task for quick finishers. A slide showing how pupils can check their answers by looking at the differences between terms. A mini-competition to check understanding so far. A set of open questions for pupils to explore, where they try to find nth term rules that fit simple criteria. The intention is that this will develop their sense of how the coefficients of the rule affect the sequence. Plenary: A final question with a slightly different perspective on generating sequences - given an initial sequence and its rule, pupils state the sequences given by related rules. No printing needed, although I’ve included something that could be printed off as a worksheet. Please review if you buy, as any feedback is appreciated!

#### Recognising and extending quadratic sequences

A complete lesson for introducing quadratic sequences. Rather than go straight into using or finding nth term rules, the focus is on looking at differences between terms to identify and extend given sequences. Activities included: Starter: A related number puzzle Main: Slides/examples to define quadratic sequences A set of sequences, some quadratic, for pupils to determine whether they are quadratic or not. A more challenging, open-ended task, where, given the first, second and fourth terms of a quadratic sequence, pupils form and solve an equation to find the third term. Having solved once for given numbers, pupils can create their own examples. Plenary: A comparison between linear and quadratic sequences. No printing required, please review if you buy as any feedback is appreciated!
