NUMBER PATTERNS
- Investigate and identify number patterns including but not limited to those with
**·**constant difference between consecutive terms (linear patterns)
**·**constant second difference (quadratic patterns)
**·**constant ratios (exponential patterns) - Extend the pattern and explain how the terms are generated.
- Determine the general term
- Calculate the term value and the number of terms in a sequence of any pattern.
- Links must be clearly established between patterns done in earlier grades so that for example, learners understand that an arithmetic sequence is a linear pattern and a geometric sequence is an exponential pattern.
- Calculate the term value and the number of terms in a sequence of any pattern.
- Convert fluently between:
notation and**expanded notation**. - Proofs of the sum of arithmetic and geometric series are examinable.
NOTE:Recursive formulae are part of number patterns but are tested ONLY in the optional paper 3. |
