Product Description
Arithmetic Sequences and Series - Task Cards

This set contains 26 task cards with arithmetic sequence and series problems.

Tasks 1-12 ... are Arithmetic Sequence problems.
Students will practice identifying the first term and the common
difference in the sequence, writing the explicit formula of a given
arithmetic sequence, using a formula to find a specific term, the number
of terms, and other variations of the General Formula.

Tasks 13-22 … are Arithmetic Series problems. Students will practice finding the
sum of an arithmetic sequence, using a formula to find the sum of a specific
number of terms, the number of terms, and other variations of the Summation
Formula. Tasks 21 and 22 require solving a system of linear equations using the
arithmetic sequence formula for the nth term and the formula for the sum the first n
terms.

Tasks 23-25 … are complex problems that require using both formulas - the
arithmetic sequence formula for the nth term and the formula for the sum the first n
terms.

Task 26 … asks students to determine if sequences are arithmetic or not when
given their explicit formulas.

This product is designed to be used for a class, as well as for a math center or home-study, and it includes:
• A sheet with an introduction to the topic (a quick review of the ideas of an
arithmetic sequence and arithmetic series, including arithmetic sequence and
series formulas)
• A blank answer sheet for students
