Final words

This video is another in the series relating to sequences for the Year 11 General Maths Units 1 and 2 course. Using the ideas of what a geometric sequence is, we can now make sure to learn the difference between a rule and a recurrence relationship (otherwise known as a term-to-term rule). As this is a pretty short video, I look at how to read a recurrence relationship and how to then use it to generate sequences. There are some worked examples and they are all explained in an easy to understand way.
