Use the lessons of this chapter to improve your understanding of the Fibonacci sequence, arithmetic sequences, geometric sequences and summation notation as you prepare for the MTEL Mathematics/Science (Middle School) exam.

## MTEL Middle School Math/Science: Sequences & Series - Chapter Summary

Watch our expert instructors in this series of lesson videos to review the different types of arithmetic and geometric sequences as well as the summation notations of mathematical series. After exploring these lessons, you should be better prepared for questions on the Massachusetts Test for Educator Licensure (MTEL) Mathematics/Science (Middle School) exam about:

• The golden ratio in nature and the Fibonacci sequence
• Finding and classifying arithmetic and geometric sequences
• Using sigma and the summation notation of mathematical series
• Calculating arithmetic and geometric sequences

Once you watch a lesson, read its lesson transcript for a written overview of the material presented in it. Also, take the lesson quiz that accompanies it to identify the subjects you didn't comprehend and then use the video tags for review purposes.

### MTEL Middle School Math/Science: Sequences & Series Objectives

The MTEL Mathematics/Science (Middle School) is a computer-based certification exam used by the state of Massachusetts to test the mathematical and scientific knowledge of potential middle-grades math and science teachers. During this exam, you will be asked to answer a series of 100 multiple-choice questions and two open-response assignments, in a four-hour testing session. Twelve percent of your score on this exam will be based on your responses to questions about patterns, relations and algebra. Use this chapter to prepare for the questions that will ask you about mathematical series and sequences.
