Types of Sequence Gap Fill/Notes

Types of Sequence Gap Fill/Notes

Foldable notes created to ensure students have reference for linear, quadratic, geometric and Fibbonaci-type sequences. Slides match these notes - students are to fill in the gaps as you display information on the board. Some additional info on slides, including examples from Don Steward median site (obvious style change from my own!) PPT slides have been made with the purpose of differentiating between these and were used in conjuction with other resources e.g. Tick or Trash, mostly found on resourceaholic/Don Stewar's Median site. Notebook slides were a quick overview for an enrichment lesson with most focus on Fibbonaci-type sequences.

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.

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. 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 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. 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 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. The lesson comes with a starter, learning objectives, key words, 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, 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 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, 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.
