Camilla Clarkson Thank you for your comment. The beauty of mathematics lies in the connections we make, not the disparate skills. Quite a lot has been added to the higher tier. Explain that each person represents a term in a sequence, given by the headband. Part a has been done as an example. Pupil 3 turns around their card — Red 7.
I love the worksheets produced by danwalker on TES resources. Give each pupil in the sequence the appropriate number from the two times table. As always, Resourcaholic is the place to find all updates. Patterns and sequences solutions docx. Hopefully my students will be able to assess the materials. Unknown 26 August at
Sorry, your blog cannot share posts by email. This question appeared on AQA Paper 2 for both homewogk and higher tier: I was a bit confused by the meaning of ‘Fibonacci type sequences’ because I thought that there was only one Fibonacci sequence and by definition it is 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, I’m surprised to hear that this formula is homeowrk GCSE textbooks – I didn’t know it was commonly used at this level.
The sample assessment materials provide two examples of geometric progression questions. Camilla Clarkson Thank you for your comment. Or a mystery number? Try this with other sequences and develop the idea of Nth term.
How do you get from the headband to the sequence?

I really appreciate the links to all the resources – brilliant! Thankfully Edexcel’s sample assessment materials clarify this for us – this question appears on both their foundation and higher sample papers: A worksheet on the nth term and term-to-term rule of sequences The worksheet begins with substitution into an nth term to generate a sequence, progressing to finding an nth term and finishing with harder problems. Patterns and sequences solutions docx. Karla Bennett, I agree with you: Thanks so much I have found a wealth of information regarding resources for the new gcse topics.
What is your understanding of nth term of arithmetic sequences. Keep me logged in. The beauty of mathematics lies in tew connections we make, not the disparate skills.
This is what he came up with: Also, do have a look at AQA’s resources for this topic – their recurrence relations activities are great. This is a nice introduction to the topic – I have a worksheet on it here.
Outcome I used this as a plenary for a term to term sequences lesson with a shared class. Pattern Spotting In a fairly simple sequence, students might be able to make comparisons to known sequences eg square numbers to derive the nth term. Download the free PDF resource.
A good selection of questions too. In the following lesson my colleague, D, used this idea to develop the concept of Nth term with another class.
But now we need to include a few weeks’ worth of sequences lessons in our GCSE schemes of work. Pupil 2 turns around their card — Red 5. I described them using the following comparisons with the roller disco at our local Sports Centre:
