**Solution to Thursday’s assignment**: Solution

**Lesson**: 6.7b Recursively Defined Sequences

**Learning Tool**: Big Ideas Algebra textbook, page 312

**Goal**: I can write recursive rules for sequences using function notation by understanding that a(n -1) is the term before the a(n) term

**Background Notes**

Your textbook using subscript notation, while we have been using function notation

The advantage of function notation is that it reminds us that a sequence is a function in which the input is the term number, n, and the output is the term a(n)

The following is a link showing the similarities and differences between the two types of notation: function notation vs subscript notation

**Notes**:

*You are responsible for taking your own notes by reading through the following examples in your Big Ideas textbook, beginning on page 312. *

Example 1: Writing Terms of Recursively Defined Sequences (even number completed)

Example 2: Writing Recursive Rules

Example 3: Translating Recursive Rules into Explicit Equations

Example 4: Translating Explicit Equations into Recursive Rules

Example 5:Writing Recursive Rules for Other Sequences
