I created this types of sequences graphic organizer for my Algebra 1 students to glue in their interactive notebooks. Even though Oklahoma’s standards only mention arithmetic and geometry sequences, I decided to include a category called “Neither” as well. This gave me the opportunity to expose my students to the Fibonacci sequence!

In retrospect, I think I should have began this unit with a card sort where students had to create their own methods of sorting sequences. I wonder if their sorting methods would be similar to the way we classify sequences as mathematicians.
