    Quote from TpT Purchasers:

    "This is a first class product!"

    "My students really enjoyed this game! Who would have thought that using playing cards would be a great way to randomize problems that students would actually enjoy. Thank you!"

    "Your resources are amazing! So clear, concise and hassle-free!"

    "I was looking for a hook to get students engaged after more than a month of equations. This was great as an introductory lesson for my regular classes and as an extension for my advanced students."

    “This activity helped my students develop a good intuition about arithmetic sequences."

    "Great addition to my unit on Sequences. Thanks"

    "Awesome! Used cards in math during my elementary days and transitioning into middle school, I wondered how to bring math alive. This helps a great deal"

    1. EDITABLE 48 Question in Game - 60 MINUTES {Student Self-Check Answers}

    This product covers:

    * given a sequence of three terms, the student develops the general formula using the arithmetic formula in which d is positive or negative but there are no fractions in the a1,d or the sequence. [ 12 questions ]

    * given a1 and d, state the first five terms of the sequence. [ 12 questions ]

    * given a sequence with three terms (d is positive and there are no fractions in a or d), determine the general formula for the arithmetic sequence. [ 12 questions ]

    * given a1, d and n, determine the nth term of the sequence using the formula. [ 12 questions ]


    Package includes:

    * rationale: how to use the product in the classroom

    * student instruction handout

    This is a math game in which one pair of students competes against another. The first team selects a card from a deck of cards and answers the matching question on the activity sheet(example 4 of hearts). The 2 students work cooperatively to obtain an answer. If correct they get a point, if not the other team can get the rebound point. Then team 2 selects a card, discusses the answer and so on. It is cooperative because the 2 students work together, yet competitive because it pits one team against another. The students have fun and get the math work done. As well, the students can work on this activity alone, can be used as a review.

    This Resource covers:

    * introduction to the Arithmetic Sequences unit

    * activity where students develop the concept of Arithmetic Sequences

    * study 20 Examples and Non-Examples (DATA SET)

    * examples are from: charts, number sequences, block sequences, formula and pictures

    * students inductively form concept of Arithmetic Sequences

    * Testers - 6 questions to test student understanding of the concept

    * use their definition and understanding to test new examples

    * suggestions for Differentiation


    Package includes:

    * A "How to Use This Resource" in the classroom

    * Practical "Hints" page for classroom teacher

    * Data Set composed of 10 "Yes" and 10 "No" examples

    * Student Conclusion handout

    * Suggested solutions for Student Conclusions

    * Testers: students test their definition on new examples

    * Testers: answer key

    * EDITABLE Data Set of 20 sequences

    * EDITABLE Testers - 6 sequences


    Use as:

    - class activity: teacher directed

    - Think-Pair-Share

    - individual activity

    - differentiated learning


    This activity allows the students to look at a list of examples of arithmetic sequences and then a list on non-arithmetic sequences (Data Set). Students look for patterns and induce the definition of the arithmetic sequence. There are visual representations also. The students then look at some sample 'testers' and decide if they are arithmetic or not.

    Fun, effective, quick and students love this technique.
