Homework #1
1. Consider the visual pattern in the progression below:
(a) Explain how the sequence 1, 3, 5, 7, … relates to the pictures.
(b) Explain how the sequence 4, 10, 16, 22, … relates to the pictures.
(c) Identify another number sequence related to the picture and explain what the
relationship is.
2. Use the rule to complete the data table.
(a) The next term in the sequence is the preceding term multiplied by 10. The starting
term is 5.

(b) Each term in the sequence is found by subtracting 4 from the position number. Start
with position 0.

3. Fill in the table showing the position numbers and terms, and then find a pattern in the
sequence. Use the pattern to write the rule in “short-hand notation”. (There may be more
than one rule possible.)
(a) 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, . . .

(b) 1, 4, 9, 16, 25, 36, . . .

(c) 1, ½, ⅓, ¼, ⅕, . . .

(d) 0, ½, ⅔, ¾, ⅘, ⅚, . . .

4. Find the pattern and use it to write the next two equations. Then complete the sequence
table.
(a) A(0) = 17
A(3) = A(2) – 4

Central Park in NYC in May 2014. Use the notation T(n) to stand for the temperature n
days after April 30.

(c) What is the numerical value of T(1)?
(d) What is the numerical value of T(4)?
(e) The average temperature for May 25 was 68℉. Express this using the T(n) notation. In
other words,
T(
