## Learning objectives:

- Review the basics of mathematical sequences.
- Identify math sequences in everyday life.
- Learn to calculate an arithmetic series.
- Find and classify geometric sequences.
- Explore the language of logic and its uses in mathematics.

### 1. What is a Mathematical Sequence?

A mathematical sequence is a set of numbers that makes a pattern and can be simple or complicated, finite or infinite. Explore sequences, terms in a sequence, and the different kinds of mathematical sequences, including the famous Fibonacci sequence.

### 2. How to Find and Classify an Arithmetic Sequence

Arithmetic sequences, the pattern of progressing numbers, can be classified by finding the difference between numbers in the sequence and then notating them into a formula. See the process of the two standard formulas used, as well as how to find them using terms.

### 3. How to Calculate an Arithmetic Series

An arithmetic series is the sum of the individual numbers contained in an arithmetic sequence. Learn the differences between arithmetic series and arithmetic sequence and discover how the formula for arithmetic series can be applied to real-life scenarios in the Michigan Stadium Solution.

### 4. Finding and Classifying Geometric Sequences

Geometric sequences are made by multiplying numbers together in a specific and repeated pattern. Learn about the ways geometric sequences are classified and how to find geometric sequences using the terms of any two given entries.

### 5. Critical Thinking and Logic in Mathematics

Mathematics involves logic and critical thinking to make connections and draw conclusions. Explore how to use logic, propositions, true or false, and critical thinking in math problems.
