In this session, we will examine multiple representations of recursive sequences through iterative techniques. Various learning styles will be addressed through modeling of real-world situations. See how handheld technology promotes algebraic thinking and a deeper understanding of sequences, functions, and limits to help students move from algebra to calculus.
