# Lesson Plan: Applications of Geometric Sequences and Series Mathematics

This lesson plan includes the objectives, prerequisites, and exclusions of the lesson teaching students how to solve real-world applications of geometric sequences and series, where we will find the common ratio, the 𝑛th term explicit formula, the order and value of a specific sequence term, and the sum of a given number of terms.

#### Objectives

Students will be able to

• model a real-world problem using a geometric sequence,
• apply methods from geometric sequences to solve real-world problems, for example, modeling a bouncing ball.

#### Prerequisites

Students should already be familiar with

• working with geometric sequences, including identifying the common ratio, finding unknown terms, and finding the sums of finite and infinite series.

#### Exclusions

Students will not cover

• applications of arithmetic sequences.
