Exploring sequences - what can they tell us?

Summary

A serious investigation of finite and infinite series becomes well within the reach of high school (and especially Year 11/12) students when technology such as graphics calculators is available to do lots of the calculations. This workshop will look at using sequences to evaluate both familiar constants and non-familiar constants (even chaotic ones). Sequences that will be investigated will be the Fibonacci and subsequent Multinacci sequences and a sequence based upon predator/prey formulae. The investigations will be presented using a Casio Classpad graphics calculator but all the investigations could be completed with alternative technologies. Bring a Graphics Calculator if you have one. Casio Classpads will be available if you do not have one.
