An arithmetic sequence is one where the term to term rule is constant. An example could be 2, 4, 6, 8, to get to the next term we add two each time. We can visualise arithmetic sequences through different drawing patterns. In this class, students can expect to learn how to define an arithmetic sequence, how draw the next pattern, and how to use the nth term to work out what the nth pattern will look like. This class is great for Years 7 - 9 but is also suitable for any student revising for an exam.
