## Introduction

This chapter explores sequences of numbers that follow a particular pattern. You begin by recognizing patterns, describing patterns, and continuing the patterns. Then, you will analyze arithmetic and geometric sequences to determine recursive and general rules for sequences. Finally, you will use formulas and the graphing calculator to find the sums of arithmetic and geometric series.
