# Lesson Plan: Introduction to Sequences Mathematics

This lesson plan includes the objectives, prerequisites, and exclusions of the lesson teaching students how to identify a sequence and some of the common properties of sequences.

#### Objectives

Students will be able to

- understand the definition of a sequence,
- understand the domain and range of a sequence,
- classify a sequence as finite or infinite,
- understand how to classify a sequence as arithmetic, geometric, or neither,
- represent arithmetic and geometric sequences on a graph,
- generate sequences from graphs or diagrams.

#### Prerequisites

Students should already be familiar with

- the concept of a set.

#### Exclusions

Students will not cover

- other polynomial forms of sequence (quadratic, etc.),
- the term of an arithmetic or geometric sequence,
- the sum of an infinite sequence,
- sigma notation.
