# GCSE Term-to-term sequences & Arithmetic vs Geometric Progressions

## 2 files15/04/2019

Covers the obscurer parts of the GCSE syllabus on sequences: term-to-term sequences (including Fibonacci like sequences) and Arithmetic and Geometric progressions.

# GCSE Quadratic Sequences

## 1 files27/12/2018

Covers the new GCSE9-1 content on quadratic sequences. Includes an exploration at the end of why we halve the second difference to get the n

^{2}term.# TMIDL #8: Quadratic Sequences

## 1 files01/10/2018

A series of posters on teaching methods I don't like, including details of the original method, my pedagogical complaints, and my preferred method.

# Sequences

## 4 files22/07/2018

(a) Term-to term rules and position-to-term rules (both linear and non-linear) (b) Finding the nth term of linear sequences. (c) Finding nth term of an oscillating sequence (e.g. 100th term of 6, 4, 1, 6, 4, 1, 6, ...) with application to last digit of powers (e.g. 3^100)

# GCSE/IGCSE FM Sequences

## 2 files14/06/2018

Mostly covers the AQA IGCSE Further Maths syllabus. Includes general sequence problems, limiting values of a sequence, and nth term of quadratic sequences.

# Full Coverage: Sequences

## 1 files23/04/2018

GCSE question compilation which aims to cover all types of questions that might be seen on the topic of sequences (arithmetic, quadratic and term-to-term). Students can complete this set of questions interactively on the DFM Homework Platform. Also contains answers.

# TMIDL #5: Using 0th term when finding nth term formula of a linear sequence

## 1 files05/01/2018

A series of posters on teaching methods I don't like, including details of the original method, my pedagogical complaints, and my preferred method.

# Advanced Sequences

## 6 files12/05/2016

(Used for Tiffin Year 9 scheme of work) Includes a 'levelled activity' where students advance through progressively difficult levels. Please note that the slides may be updated within the next month to include more of (d) below. (a) Recap: Find/use nth term of a linear sequence. (b) Find/use nth term of a quadratic sequence. (c) Identify the formula for the nth term of a simple geometric sequence (e.g nth term of 2, 4, 8, 16, ... is 2^n) (d) Extension: Solve sequence proofs and problems involving missing terms, using algebraic approaches.

Key Skills are finegrained question types where students can practise randomly generated questions with accompanying short worked-example videos.
