*Learning Goal: Understand how to write formulas for patterns and sequences.*

# Activity:

- Card Ordering (Big Ideas) [Do this as warm up]

# Classwork:

# Finished Early?

# Standards:

**Common Core**- HSF.BF.A.2 – Write arithmetic and geometric sequences both recursively and with an explicit formula, use them to model situations, and translate between the two forms.

**TEKS (2015-16)**- A.12(D) – write a formula for the nth term of arithmetic and geometric sequences, given the value of several of their terms
