Algebra I Module 3, Topic A, Overview

Class in Lecture Hall

In Topic A, students explore arithmetic and geometric sequences as an introduction to the formal notation of functions (F-IF.A.1, F-IF.A.2).  They interpret arithmetic sequences as linear functions with integer domains and geometric sequences as exponential functions with integer domains (F-IF.A.3, F-BF.A.1a).  Students compare and contrast the rates of change of linear and exponential functions, looking for structure in each and distinguishing between additive and multiplicative change (F-IF.B.6, F-LE.A.1, F-LE.A.2, F-LE.A.3).
