Ch 23: ACT Math - Sequences: Tutoring Solution

About This Chapter

The Math - Sequences chapter of this ACT Prep Tutoring Solution is a flexible and affordable path to learning about sequences. These simple and fun video lessons are each about five minutes long, and they teach all of the operations involving sequences required for the ACT exam.

How it works:

  • Begin your ACT review or other math preparation work.
  • Identify the sequences concepts that you're stuck on.
  • Find fun videos on the topics you need to understand.
  • Press play, watch and learn!
  • Complete the quizzes to test your understanding.
  • As needed, submit a question to one of our instructors for personalized support.

Who's it for?

This chapter of our ACT prep tutoring solution will benefit any student who is trying to learn about sequences and earn acceptable scores. This resource can help students including those who:

  • Struggle with understanding mathematical sequences, classification of arithmetic and geometric sequences, or any other sequences topic
  • Have limited time for studying
  • Want a cost effective way to supplement their ACT preparation
  • Prefer learning ACT topics visually
  • Find themselves struggling with the sequences portion of the review
  • Cope with ADD or ADHD
  • Want to get ahead in their ACT preparation
  • Don't have access to ACT review materials

Why it works:

  • Engaging Tutors: We make learning about sequences simple and fun.
  • Cost Efficient: For less than 20% of the cost of a private tutor, you'll have unlimited access 24/7.
  • Consistent High Quality: Unlike a live ACT prep tutor, these video lessons are thoroughly reviewed.
  • Convenient: Imagine a tutor as portable as your laptop, tablet or smartphone. Complete your sequences review on the go!
  • Learn at Your Pace: You can pause and rewatch lessons as often as you'd like, until you master the material.

Learning objectives:

  • Review what a mathematical sequence is.
  • Learn to find and classify an arithmetic sequence.
  • Find out how to find and classify geometric sequences.

What is a Mathematical Sequence?

1. What is a Mathematical Sequence?

Mathematical sequences are a set of numbers that make a pattern. Explore different kinds of math sequences, including finite sequences, infinite sequences, arithmetic sequences, geometric sequences, and the Fibonacci sequence.

How to Find and Classify an Arithmetic Sequence

2. How to Find and Classify an Arithmetic Sequence

Arithmetic sequences are patterns created with repeated addition. Explore these patterns and learn how to create an arithmetic sequence formula and how to find and classify an arithmetic sequence.

Finding and Classifying Geometric Sequences

3. Finding and Classifying Geometric Sequences

Geometric sequences are patterns where each new term is created by multiplying the previous one by the same amount repeatedly. Learn about geometric sequences and investigate how to find the terms in a geometric sequence.

Summation Notation and Mathematical Series

4. Summation Notation and Mathematical Series

Sigma notation allows individuals to add up all of the terms in a sequence. Explore summation notations, how to express mathematical series, and the significance of the Greek letter sigma in math.

How to Calculate an Arithmetic Series

5. How to Calculate an Arithmetic Series

A sequence of numbers can be totaled without summing every number in the pattern. Learn about the origin of the arithmetic formula, understand how the calculation works, and practice using it.

How to Calculate a Geometric Series

6. How to Calculate a Geometric Series

A geometric series is the combination of a geometric sequence. Learn how to calculate a formula for a geometric series, how to solve the formula, and the difference between finite and infinite geometric series, and how to solve them, as well.

Arithmetic and Geometric Series: Practice Problems

7. Arithmetic and Geometric Series: Practice Problems

A mathematical series is composed of numbers added infinitely and these series can be classified as arithmetic or geometric. Learn about arithmetic and geometric series, and explore how each series differ from one another with four practice problems.
