  • Handout for NCTM Talk on sequences pdf.pdf (394.3 kB)

  • Learn how students can gain a solid understanding of linear functions, by first studying in–out boxes (as functions), then number sequences, then finite differences to find the general term, then arithmetic sequences, and finally slope, f(x) intercept, and graphs. We will explore powerful applications.
