This is a note sheet to teach how to write a rule/general equation/explicit formula for a geometric sequence and how to find the nth term of a geometric sequence.
The file includes a page that is formatted to fit perfectly within an interactive student notebook (composition book).
I've used this resource and modified it many times. Students really seem to "get it" by using this set of notes. I will be uploading a similar one that I use for arithmetic sequences.
The file also includes a picture of my notes (when it was all handwritten).
Page 1 & 2 - Blackline master to make copies
Page 3 - A handwritten copy of how I fill in the pages of the foldable.
F.LE. 2: Construct linear and exponential function, including arithmetic and geometric sequence, given a graph a description of a relationship, or two input-output pairs (include reading these from a table.)
