There are 7 exercise sheets and an examination-style assessment test, each with answers included in this unit.
Our resources apply the principles of Mastery throughout, creating a rich and deep learning experience. Find out more about Mastery with our quick guide.
This unit considers sequences and inequalities; developing the fundamentals of the maths behind sequences and extending into more complex sequences. With graphics which enhance learning and a focus on developing mastery, this unit provides an excellent platform to learn about this area of mathematics. Starting with the concept of sequences, the unit considers linear sequences; recognising, describing and finding the nth term. Triangular number sequences, Fibonacci sequence and other known sequences are explored whilst arithmetic and geometric sequences are identified and distinguished. Quadratic sequences are met and their nth term is used to generate a sequence. Relevance to real-life context is used to enhance learning and facilitate the application of skills developed with sequences. The unit closes by considering inequalities; solving linear inequalities using a number line and algebraic techniques and applying this knowledge to tackle reasoning problems.
