Center Focus


  1. Have samples of sequences available for your students to study. Use mathematical sequences such as:
    • 2 4 6 8
    • 1 4 7 10
    • 2 4 16 256
  2. Have an explanation for each sample explaining why it is a sequence.
  3. Provide worksheets for the students to practice completing sequences that you have started at the center. Provide answers so that they may check their work after they are finished with the practice problems.
  4. Have students come up with an original sequence. Have them complete it to six or seven terms. Then, have them exchange sequences with fellow students at the center to see if they can complete them.
