Sequences (Fan and Pick/ Question Cards)

Updated April 2018- This resources has new content added. It now includes one set in the traditional fan and pick style (i.e. answer on the question cards) and a second version of the question cards with the answer removed. Therefore giving more flexibility for how you might use them with your students. Previous buyers, please re-download to access new content.
Fan and Pick activity promotes cooperative learning (Kagan strategy), by creating situations for discussions around finding the correct answer and not just what the answer is. They can be used as a plenary activity to determine what learning has taken place, used to determine pupils prior knowledge to a topic and of course great for revision.
Each Fan and Pick set has a set of 12 question cards, each card has three questions differentiated by hotness. The sequences questions here cover finding the next term, the nth term, generating a sequence and deciding if a term is in the sequence; including linear, quadratic and Fibonacci sequences. Alternatively use the second set (with answers removed) as differentiated question task cards.
Full instructions and solutions are provided along with suggestions for stretch and challenge.
