In this video, we’re going to discover some key sequences terminology and how to recognize and generate some important sequences. We will come across all of these key sequences. Arithmetic, Linear, Triangular, Square, Cube, Fibonacci, Quadratic, and Geometric. And these keywords; term, 1st term, common difference, common ratio. Each number in the sequence is called a term. This just tells us that the sequence carries on forever.
Sequences that have a common difference, so the same difference every time, are called arithmetic sequences or linear sequences. The sequence comes from the pattern of dots needed to make a triangle. Square numbers and cube numbers are also special sequences. This is called the Fibonacci Sequence. You just add up the 2 numbers before to get the next term. There’s a lot you can discover about Fibonacci, such as if you make squares of the Fibonacci sizes, you get a spiral. It’s linked to The Golden Ratio. And is seen throughout nature.
So, in arithmetic or linear sequences, it’s called a common difference and in geometric sequences, it’s called a common ratio. So now we know the difference between these sequences. Arithmetic, Linear, Triangular, Square, Cube, Fibonacci, Quadratic, Geometric. And what these keywords mean: term, 1st term, common difference, common ratio.

You should already know that velocity-time graphs look like this... and how we can use them to map out a journey.
If you’re unsure, you may want to watch this video first...In this video we’re going to look at the area under these graphs and what they represent. Let’s start by looking at a simple v

In this video we look at the basics of algebra, focusing on the notation that is used.
In algebra we use symbols to represent numbers. These symbols are called variables. Some reasons for using symbols instead of numbers is that the symbols, or variables, can represent unknown quantities and for s

Interest is the amount charged by a lender to a borrower. It means that if you borrow some money from a bank, you have to pay back more than the money you borrowed. Equally, if you have a savings account and deposit some money, the bank will pay you interest as a sort of thank you for saving with th
