Description

This video is the next in the series relating to Sequences for the Year 11 General Maths course. Having looked at what a sequence is, we now look at how we can create a rule for the nth term of an arithmetic sequence. I do this using examples (lots of them!) to show how we can build up a rule and then use it in a range of question. I then look at how we can apply the rule to a real world example. There is humour and great explanations throughout the video!
