## Algebra II

(7 Units, 80 Lessons)

#### 1. Introduction to Sequences

Big Idea: Detecting patterns in numbers helps students see the mathematical relationships that underlie real world phenomena. In this colorful lesson, students look at patterns of numbers and uncover the rule used to generate them.

#### 2. Arithmetic Sequences

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

#### 3. 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.

#### 11. Modeling with Sequences and Series

Big Idea: Mix it up! Now I put several types of application problems together and make sure students know when to model with a sequence and when to use a series.

#### 12. Review of Sequences and Series

Big Idea: Help students assess their own understanding of sequences and series with a concept checklist. Students will organize and practice what they have learned about arithmetic and geometric sequences and series in preparation for the next day's test.
