The 2 graphic organizers included are intended to be used in an Interactive Notebook. If not using a notebook, you can still benefit from using one full page of notes for each topic to save in a binder.
The topics contained are the following:
Arithmetic Series defined
5 difference examples of finding the sum of a finite arithmetic series
Summation notation defined
Finding the sum of a arithmetic series in summation notation
Writing a an arithmetic series in summation notation using the explicit formula
I hope you stay in touch and let me know how it worked for you in your classroom.
