Cool road trip game for kids of all ages! To play Roadside Math, start by looking for highway road signs that have mileage numbers on them. Many of them also can be viewed as arithmetic formulas ranging from basic addition and multiplication to square roots and prime number calculations. Created by Jamie Thingelstad, this site and game are both fascinating and fun.
This worksheet has students practicing the use of two arithmetic formulas. Students will need to know the formula to find a specific term in an arithmetic sequence: an = a1 + (n 1)d and the formula to find the sum of a sequence: Sn = n(a1 + an)/2. By finding the sum for each series students will be able to match colors with the correct number for the coloring sheet.
Use Arithmetic Sequences Guided Notes to help your students learn vocabulary terms, subscript and function notation, and how to write a formula for a sequence. The notes cover how to identify an arithmetic sequence, writing equations, and practice problems involving evaluating, matching formulas to sequences, and graphing.You will receive the 2 pages of student handouts along with answer keys in PDF format.
