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!

Blogging Prompt 1 of 3
What effect does a negative starting number have on the sequence? What effect does a large negative starting number have on the sequence? What effect does a positive starting number have on the sequence? What effect does a large positive starting number have on the sequence?

Blogging Prompt 2 of 3
What effect does a decimal multiplier have on the sequence? What effect does a negative multiplier have on the sequence? What effect does a large multiplier have on the sequence?

Blogging Prompt 3 of 3
What effect does a negative add-on have on the sequence? What effect does a large negative add-on have on the sequence? What effect does a positive add-on have on the sequence? What effect does a large positive add-on have on the sequence?

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.
