Videos, worksheets, games and activities to help Algebra II students learn about recursion sequences. What is a recursive formula and how do they generate sequences?

Recursion Sequences :

While arithmetic and geometric sequences involve a rule that uses a constant number, recursion sequences use the terms themselves in the rule. One term in recursion sequences is determined from using the terms before it. This concept of recursion sequences can be difficult to fully comprehend, but is found often in mathematics. For example, the Fibonacci sequence is a famous recursion sequence.

How to use a recursion formula to represent the Fibonacci sequence.

Find the first few terms of two different recursive sequences ( that is, sequences where one term is used to find the next term, and so on).
