Patterns in Number Sequences

Patterns in Number Sequences

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

Sequences and Series 

Stage: 4 and 5
These problems for Stage 4 and 5 students look at more challenging sequences and introduce the idea of series summation.
These articles make the case for teaching in a way that emphasises understanding of underlying structures rather than simply noticing patterns in sequences.
