These collections of problems introduce number sequences and representations, with problems for older secondary students focussing on summation of series. Each problem has detailed teachers' notes with suggestions for classroom use.

Age 11 to 16

These problems allow Stage 3 and 4 students to explore and describe sequences, and explain the patterns they notice.

Age 14 to 18

These problems for Stage 4 and 5 students look at more challenging sequences and introduce the idea of series summation.

Age 11 to 16

These articles make the case for teaching in a way that emphasises understanding of underlying structures rather than simply noticing patterns in sequences.
