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 ]

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.

______________________________________________________

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.
