Sequence: An ordered list of numbers that follow a certain pattern
(or rule).
Arithmetic Sequence:
(i) Recursive Deﬁnition: An ordered list of numbers
generated by continuously adding a value (the
common difference) to a given ﬁrst term.
(ii) Implicit Deﬁnition: An ordered list of
numbers where each number in the list is
generated by a linear equation.
Example:

Sequence: An ordered list of numbers that follow a certain pattern
(or rule).
Common Difference (d):
(i) The number that is repeatedly added to
successive terms in an arithmetic sequence.
(ii) From the implicit deﬁnition, d is the slope
of the linear equation.
Example: 4, 7, 10, 13, , ,

Determine which of the following sequences are arithmetic. If a
sequence is arithmetic, write the values of a and d. HOMEWORK
(a) 5, 9, 13, 17, ... (b) 1, 6, 10, 15, 19, ...
Given the values of a and d, write the ﬁrst 5 terms of each
arithmetic sequence.
(a) a = 7, d, = 2 (b) a = -4, d, = 6
11.
List the ﬁrst 4 terms of the sequence determined by each of the
following implicit deﬁnitions. HOMEWORK

Use your calculator to ﬁnd the ﬁrst 10 terms and the sum of the
ﬁrst 10 terms of the sequence: 16, 8, 4, 2, . . . HOMEWORK
(a) What is the 10th term? What is the sum of the ﬁrst 10 terms?
(b) Extend the sequence to 15 terms. What is the 15th term?
What is the sum of 15 terms?
(c) What happens to the terms as you have more terms? Also,
what happens to the value of the sum of the terms as you have
more terms? (Look at 30, 50, or more terms to verify this answer.)
