Description

This video builds on the first video and looks at Sequences for the General Maths Units 1 and 2 course. Having looked at what a sequence is, I now look at what an Arithmetic sequence is. This is where we add or subtract a common difference to get from one term to the next in a sequence. I show examples of how to find the common difference and how to identify an arithmetic sequence. I also show how to use the CAS to find an Arithmetic Sequence which is going to come in very hand in the Year 12 course and financial mathematics. The lesson is delivered in my unique style with humour and worked examples.
