Big Ideas: Write and use both recursive and explicit formulas with regards to arithmetic and geometric sequences. Use these formulas to model situations. In this lesson, students will begin to learn about recursive and explicit formulas to formalize their previous knowledge of arithmetic and geometric sequences. Vocabulary: arithmetic sequences, geometric sequences, common difference, common ratio, recursive formulas, explicit formulas Special Materials: None
