“WHAT IS BRIGHT AND ASKS A LOT OF
QUESTIONS” WORKSHEET
A sequence is a set of numbers that are in a
particular order.
An Arithmetic Sequence is a sequence that has a
constant value added to each number to make the
next in the set. EX: 1, 4, 7, 10, 13, 16… (adds 3)
1. Look at the patterns at the top of the page (D-H)
and list any that appear to be an Arithmetic
Sequence.
“WHAT IS BRIGHT AND ASKS A LOT OF
QUESTIONS” WORKSHEET
In a Geometric Sequence each term is found by
multiplying the previous term by a constant to get
the next. EX: 1, 3, 9, 27, 81… (multiply by 3)
2. Identify any patterns at the top (D-H) that appear
to be a Geometric Sequence.

TODAY?” WORKSHEET
6. Extend EACH table on the page by one additional
row below. Find a point on each graph that you
created to write new (x, y) values on the table from
the graph. (**HINT: Look at where your line crosses
intersections on the grid lines of each graph and
write that point location)

TODAY?” WORKSHEET
7. Using a highlighter, find the point where each line
crosses the y-axis. Highlight that point on the
corresponding table. That point is called the
y-intercept
8. Examine the y-intercept and the equation that
goes with each table. Describe any connection
you see.
