Product Description
Engage your students with the circuit format! This set of 24 questions begins with patterns and progresses to introduce vocabulary such as first term, common ratio, explicit formula, recursive formula, etc. There are even a few "word problems" snuck in about a rabbit population and a radioactive substance.

I wrote this circuit to help my algebra one students (though algebra two and college algebra students would gain a lot from this circuit) learn the patterning and notation that surrounds the geometric sequence. Too often, students (and teachers) are thrown into generalizations before seeing enough examples. This circuit aims to help them discover and uncover the salient characteristics and associated variables / equations with geometric sequences.

There is no answer key provided because the answers are imbedded in the circuit (it is how the students move from one question to the nest). The only thing the teacher needs to do is work the circuit ahead of the students to decide how and when to best use it in his or her classroom. Also, the teacher can decide where a calculator would be permitted. I would allow my students to use a calculator on this circuit.

My colleagues and I check our circuits very carefully but should you ever suspect an error or get stuck, please don't hesitate to email me at

This circuit can also be purchased at a reduced price as part of a bundle which also includes an arithmetic sequences circuit and a mixed (arith / geo) circuit. Follow this link to find the bundle:
