This is a rich Venn Diagram activity on linear sequences, including nth term.

To access all the Venn Diagram activities in this collection, as well as teaching notes, please visit: http://www.mrbartonmaths.com/venn.htm

Here is why I love Venn Diagram activities so much:

1) Students can always make a start. If they can think of a number/expression/object or whatever it might be, it has to go in one of the regions on the diagram, so they are up and running
2) The more regions student find, the more challenging the task gets, which adds a nice element of differentiation
3) They are incredibly versatile, and can be used for almost all maths topics for all ages and abilities
4) They are easy to tweak by simply changing one of the circle labels if you find they are too difficult/easy
5) Students can create their own as an extension task

I hope you and your students enjoy them.

Another rich task from Mr Barton Maths, this time its a Venn diagram task. Students have to create sets of numbers themselves that fit into each section of a Venn diagram. Students need to be able to find a common difference of a sequence, find a given term and know how to find an nth term and there is a good mixture of easy double Venn diagrams, as well as some triple Venn diagrams for more challenge.

Love the resource, think I might use it as a first lesson activity in September. I am going to differentiate it though, instead of being for nth term rules I am going to ask students to find either an nth term rule OR a sequence that fits into each region. This also gives scope for the idea to be used for any sequence, not just linear.
