### Fun With Sequences

Can you tell arithmetic and geomteric sequences apart? Find out here.

Play with the Sequencer tonight! **Starting number** is the first term in the sequence. For an arithmentic sequence make the **Multiplier** one and change the **Add-on**; for a geometric sequence make the **Add-on** zero and try different values of the **Multiplier**. Once you've made your choices click on the **[Calculate Sequence!]** button. It might also be fun to see what happens when both are **not zero**. Try it! See what happens ....

Now you're ready for your blogging promts -- 3 tonight!

I found a web site that personally, I think is a little more clear in dipicting the relations of arithmetic and geometeric sequence graphs. You can find it

here.note:you can only use it once for five minutes max. each day.## Post a Comment
