The instructor demonstrates identifying arithmetic sequences and finding the nth term of a sequence. A definition of an arithmetic sequence is given and the common difference in each sequence is pointed out. The formula a+(n-1)d is explained and us...ed to determine the specified term.

College Algebra with Professor Richard Delaware - University of Missouri Kansas City VSI - Lecture 2 - Language of mathematics. This Lecture gives an overview of the Language of Mathematics. Great for high school Algebra 2 students.

This virtual manipulative is designed to teach the concept of a function by allowing you to experiment with various functions.
Observe the output of a function by dragging numbers from the top left corner to the IN chute of the function machine. T...he function machine will process the number and produce an output value.
-Make a guess what function the machine is using by observing the output.
-Use your guess to decide what the remaining entries of the table should be and type them into the boxes.
-If one of your entries doesn't match the computer function, you will get an error message.
-Click New Function to try a new function[more]
