This is another video in the Sequences and Finance section of the Year 11 VCE General Maths course. This video takes a look at how we can create arithmetic sequences using recursion. I look back at what an arithmetic sequence is as well as how we can now use recurrence relations to write sequences. I also look at how to graph them as, in a later video, it becomes really important to note that arithmetic sequences are linear! The last part of the video looks at how we can turn a recurrence relation into a rule for an arithmetic sequence. There are a number of worked examples and the theory is explained in an easy to understand way.
