Geometric Sequences

Unit 1: Sequences and Series
Lesson 3 of 13

Objective: SWBAT translate among verbal, algebraic, numeric and graphical representations of geometric sequences.

Big Idea: There are easier ways to generate the 100th term of a geometric sequence than listing all 99 terms before it. In this lesson, students learn to work flexibly with explicit and recursive expressions of a geometric sequence.
