Plug into our free, printable worksheets on recursive formulas for arithmetic sequences and grab an opportunity to more than prove your mathematical worth by finding arithmetic sequences using the recursive formula and finding the recursive formula for arithmetic sequences. A recursive formula defines a sequence using the previous terms. That is to say, we use the first term to figure out the second term, the second term to find the third, and so on. The arithmetic sequences in these exercises involve both rational and irrational numbers to satisfy the appetite of the studious, craving-for-more learners.

The arithmetic sequence recursive formula pdf worksheets are perfect for the 8th grade and high school students.

Finding Arithmetic Sequences Using Recursive Formulas | Worksheet #1

By now, grade 8 students should know that a_{1} refers to the first term of an arithmetic sequence, that an refers to the nth term, and that a_{n-1} is the term before it. The smart cookies won't wait for you to explain how to solve this sheet!

Finding Arithmetic Sequences Using Recursive Formulas | Worksheet #2

Put forth here are the first terms and recursive formulas of sequences. Plug a_{1} in the formula to obtain a_{2}. Repeat this step until you find a_{3} and a_{4}, and then write down the arithmetic sequences.

Finding Recursive Formulas for Arithmetic Sequences | Worksheet #1

Can you devise a recursive formula analyzing the terms of an arithmetic sequence? Devote quality time to practice this printable worksheet on recursive formulas for arithmetic sequences, ideal for high school students.

Finding Recursive Formulas for Arithmetic Sequences | Worksheet #2

Find the common difference(d) between any two consecutive terms given. Now, your recursive formula will be a_{n} = a_{n-1} + d if the sequence is increasing or a_{n} = a_{n-1} - d if it's decreasing.

Revise writing arithmetic sequences using recursive formulas in part A and excel in framing recursive formulas for arithmetic sequences in part B, making this pdf worksheet a playground of both the skills.

To extend the practice sessions of the 8th grade and high school students, this free mixed review contains recursive formulas and sequences with integers, positive and negative fractions, decimals, and square roots. Stay focused till the end!
