Arithmetic Sequences asLinear Functions
 
Arithmetic Sequences
A SEQUENCE is an ordered list of numbers.Each number in a SEQUENCE is called a TERM.In an ARITHMETIC SEQUENCE, each TERM is found by adding theSAME number to the previous TERM.For example:
,,,,,,…
 The difference between each term is called the COMMONDIFFERENCE,
.In an ARITHMETIC SEQUENCE, the COMMON DIFFERENCE will bethe SAME for ALL terms in the sequence.
 
Example 1
 –
Identifying Arithmetic Sequences
Determine if 
−,−,,,…
is an ARITHMETICSEQUENCE:It is fairly easy to see that the difference betweeneach term is constant
 –
we add 2 each time
 –
sotherefore, this is an ARITHMETIC SEQUENCE.
