This lesson is a follow-up to my Patterns & Sequences Lesson Plan on TpT. In this lesson, students will distinguish between arithmetic and geometric sequences. They will find the common difference or common ratio to a sequence and use it to find the next three terms of the pattern.
There is also a reading activity that describes some patterns and sequences that we see in the everyday world. There is a worksheet for the reading activity as well.
This lesson is for the upper-elementary and middle school grade levels. I have a high school version of the lesson on the site as well. (In the high school version, students use the arithmetic and geometric functions.)
This lesson includes an opening activity, minilesson with guided steps through the process, examples, class activities and a worksheet for homework. Answer keys included.
Common Core Standards for Grades 4-7 included on the cover page. The zip folder contains pdf and Word versions of the file.
