#### Seeing Dots

For Teachers 9th - 12th Standards
Your algebra learners interpret algebraic expressions, in order to compare their structures, using a geometric context. They also discern how the two expressions are equivalent and represent a pattern geometrically and algebraically.

#### Sums of Geometric Series

For Students 11th - Higher Ed Standards
Geometric series either get bigger or approach a single number. So, how do you know which it is? An interactive presents three different geometric series with varying common ratios. With the aid of patterns, pupils determine values of r...

#### Sidewalk Patterns

For Students 9th - 11th Standards
Sidewalk patterns ... it's definitely not foursquare! Learners investigate patterns in sidewalk blocks, write an expression to represent the pattern, and then solve problems using the expressions.

#### Stick Patterns

For Students 6th - 8th
Sticks and stones may break my bones, but these sticks will make me smarter. Pupils examine arrays of sticks to determine the next array in a pattern. They use the number of sticks added to each previous array to determine a recursive...

#### Arithmetic and Geometric Sequences

For Students 8th - 11th Standards
Old mathematicians never die; they just lose some of their functions. Studying sequences gives scholars an opportunity to use a new notation. Learners write functions to model arithmetic and geometric sequences and use them to find new...

#### Geometric Sequences

For Teachers 8th - 10th Standards
Place a activity on sequences in your sequence of lessons. Scholars first learn the basics of geometric sequences, such as common ratios and then they write recursive and explicit formulas for geometric sequences.
