Algebra 2 + Trigonometry

Unit 13 – Sequences and Series

Sequences and series are new to this level, at least in New York State.  Basic treatment of this important concept is given in this unit.  Sequences are introduced through both function formulas and through recursive definitions.  Arithmetic and geometric sequences are then developed with emphasis placed on predicting the general term of the sequence.  Finally, both arithmetic and geometric series are derived and used to solve practical applications.
