Worksheet Overview

You should already know about the Fibonacci sequence, which is generated by adding the previous two terms together.

They go like this:

1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55 ...

And arithmetic sequences where we have to find the common difference between the numbers.

They go like this:

4, 10, 16, 22, 28, 34 ...

And geometric sequences like this:

4, 20, 100, 500, 2500 ...

And the square number sequence like this:

1, 4, 9, 16, 25, 36, 49 ...

In this activity, we will be counting on in different sequences and stating the given term.
