These guided notes begin with students comparing and contrasting arithmetic and geometric sequences using a Venn Diagram. They then use the formulas for geometric sequences and series to solve problems, including finding the nth term of a sequence, the common ratio, the sum of the first n terms, and more. The back side of the notes includes applications and a geometric series problem that must be solved using a system of equations.
