I am aware that the ‘nth’ term caused a few problems yesterday. Just as a reminder, the ‘nth’ term is a formula with 'n' in it which enables you to find any term of a sequence without having to go up from one term to the next. 'n' stands for the term number so to find the 50th term we would just substitute 50 in the formula in place of 'n'. When you were asked for the first 6 terms (numbers) you would replace the ‘n’ with 1 and carry out the calculation, then replace ‘n’ with 2 and carry out the calculation, then replace the ‘n’ with 3, and so on.
Right, here goes for Wednesday 25th March:
1 If you feel that you have messed up with yesterday’s maths, go back and have another look at the section(s)
2 Using the examples, once again, from the top of the page complete page 89 of the TYM sheets (Use your blue book). This time you are coming up with the rule eg add 3 each time becomes n + 3 as a formula, divide by 2 each time becomes n/2
3 Using MyMaths, complete Substitution 1
4 Using SPAG.com, complete the test on Layout Devices and Paragraphing
5 Having read to the end of Chapter 3 of Listen To The Moon imagine that you are Alfie and write a diary entry for his day (Use your blue book)
6 Read to the end of Chapter 4 of Listen To The Moon
I’ll be in contact again tomorrow.
