This activity is designed for Algebra 2 or PreCalculus and can be used as a quick review for Calculus 2 or AP Calculus BC classes.
Introduction to general terms of Sequences and Series can be difficult for students and yet this topic is so important, especially later in Calculus. In this activity, students write out four or five terms of a sequence defined by simple and recursive formulas, and Sigma notation. Students also find the sum of a series and write a series in Sigma Notation. These problems are for the most part not Arithmetic or Geometric.
Directions how to use the TI 83 – 84 Plus calculator to find terms and sums of sequences and series.are included on a one page handout. Students can do this activity with and without a Graphing Calculator.
Included in the Lesson:
☑ Two sets of 24 cards
with and without QR. Students do not need to be on the internet to use the QR codes but must have a QR reader installed on their devices.
☑ Student response sheets
with room for students to show their work if calculator is not used
☑ Worksheet with 14 similar problems.
This can be used as Homework, Assessment or Enrichment
☑ Master List of Questions
for your convenience which can be used for an absent student
