To find an equation for the nth term of a sequence, first find out what the sequence increases or decreases by. For example, find an equation for the sequence: 16,22,28,.... this sequence goes up by 6, so we say 6n. Now we figure out the zero term, which is the term before the first term, which would be 10. So we say the equation for the sequence would be 6n + 10. How about this one: -13, -21,-29. This one goes down by 8, so we say -8n; the zero term would be -5; the final equation is -8n-5. The new homework is worksheet 32, 1-20 on section 3.5 from the website.

11-14-13

11-18-13

We continued with arithmetic sequences today. Website 3.5 (the second one) worksheet 33 1-17.

11-15-13

To find an equation for the nth term of a sequence, first find out what the sequence increases or decreases by. For example, find an equation for the sequence: 16,22,28,.... this sequence goes up by 6, so we say 6n. Now we figure out the zero term, which is the term before the first term, which would be 10. So we say the equation for the sequence would be 6n + 10. How about this one: -13, -21,-29. This one goes down by 8, so we say -8n; the zero term would be -5; the final equation is -8n-5. The new homework is worksheet 32, 1-20 on section 3.5 from the website.

11-14-13

We had a quiz today over linear equations. Download 3.5 from my website and do problems 1-17 (p 191), skipping problems 5-7.
