Geometric Sequence Worksheets
You won't regret devoting yourself to practicing our free, printable geometric sequence worksheets! After all, who doesn't want to get all their relevant facts and formulas right? Encompassing unique and brand-new exercises like identifying geometric sequences, finding the first term and common ratio, determining the missing terms or any other parameters, applying the explicit and recursive formulas, and more, this is a must-try compilation for the child prodigies.
These pdf geometric sequences worksheets are curated for the 8th grade and high school.
An introductory resource, this printable worksheet gets students to discriminate between geometric sequences and other sequences. Iterate and reiterate that the consecutive terms of a geometric sequence have a constant ratio.
Divide any two pairs of consecutive terms and check if there's a constant ratio maintained throughout the sequence. If there is, the sequence is progressing geometrically; if there isn't, it isn't.
Familiarize grade 8 and high school students with the letters "a" and "r" that denote the first term and common ratio of the sequence. Instruct them to divide two consecutive terms to obtain the common ratio.
Think of formulas when figuring out the terms or any unknown values of a sequence gets tough! Implement one such formula called the nth term or general term and find any term in the sequence explicitly.
Some terms have gone missing, or only the first three terms of the geometric sequences are given. Students need to apply the formula an = a.rn-1 and arrive at the missing or the next three terms as directed.
This set of free, printable geometric sequence worksheets is where you'll understand that any term in a sequence can be calculated with the help of its previous term using the recursive formula. Click to know more!
So far, the 8th grade and high school children had been trying and testing their skills at finding the missing terms of a sequence using the formulas. Let them now deduce the number of terms, last term, a specific term, say t8, and so on.
At the heart of this pdf geometric sequences worksheet is our sincere hope that students will keenly take down the details from the questions, bring the appropriate formulas into play, and solve the problems.
We bring you an interesting bunch of geometric sequences applied in real life, so buck up! Read the scenarios, pick out the first three terms, work out the common ratio, and go on to find the next three terms.
