##### Presentation Transcript

1. Essential Learnings • Students will understand and be able to determine the function rule for a sequence. • Students will understand and be able to model mathematical problems.

2. Vocabulary • Linear function – a function that creates a line when graphed. • Function rule – a rule that gives you the nth term in a sequence.

3. Example 1 Tell whether or not the rule is a linear function.

4. Example 2 Tell whether or not the rule is a linear function.

5. Example 3 Find the function rule for each sequence. Then find the 50th term in the sequence.

6. Example 4 Find the function rule for each sequence. Then find the 50th term in the sequence.

7. Example 5 Find the rule of the number of tiles in the nth figure. Then find the number of tiles in the 100th figure.
