These are lessons to be taken ‘off the shelf’. Each ppt contains an explanation, several different tasks, a problem solving task and a learning check. These require no printing.
Tried to add in lots of visual sequences here.
Finding the next term: Can be rather boring, so lots of questions where there’s ‘gaps’. For instance 8, __, __, 14.

Quadratic nth term: Concentrating on why halving the second difference works
