Activity and pocket for arithmetic sequences and writing rules from patterns. The circle has the definitions of an arithmetic sequence and term numbers, and it folds to create a pocket to hold the activity in an interactive notebook. The activity has students name a pattern then write a rule using variable for that pattern.
I used this in my 7th graders to introduce the term "arithmetic sequence" which is a pattern of addition. I have done similar activities with a 5th grade class. The expression in this activity is easy enough for students at that grade level to figure out.
