Proportions practice!

A LOT of you still need work on proportions. Instead of me typing out a ton of notes, I have put a link to some notes below and given you a link for a fun online practice! Take advantage of this!

Sequences Help!

Finding a sequence isn't as hard as it seems, but you must follow the same steps to help train your brain on the process!

  1. Create a table and fill it in.
  2. Find the pattern in the value of the term.
  3. Pattern becomes coefficient for n.
  4. Check with the positions to see if an additional step is needed.

Here are some practice questions!
