The Recursive Process with Arithmetic Sequences

Unit 3: Linear Functions
Lesson 2 of 20

Objective: SWBAT write a recursive formula from an arithmetic sequence, graph it, and describe the rate of change verbally and in writing.

Big Idea: This lesson takes students from the simple concrete problem of seating 4 people around a square table to the more abstract problem of finding the nth term.
