Lesson Plan: Applications of Geometric Sequences and Series Mathematics • 10th Grade

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 đť‘›th 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.
