# Arithmetic Sequences

## Arithmetic Sequences

Objective:

• To identify and extend patterns in sequences
• To represent arithmetic sequences using function notation

• I CAN recognize that sequences are functions, sometimes defined recursively, whose domain is a subset of the integers.
• I CAN write a functions that describes a relationship between two quantities.
• I CAN write an explicit or recursive expression or describe the calculations needed to model a function given a situation.
• I CAN write and translate between the recursive and explicit formula for a arithmetic sequence and use the formulas to model a situation
• I CAN make connections between linear functions and arithmetic sequences, and exponential functions and geometric sequences.
• I CAN write a linear or exponential function given an arithmetic or geometric sequence, a graph, a description of the relationship, or two points which can be read from a table.
