Term | Definition |
---|---|

arithmetic sequence |
An arithmetic sequence has a common difference between each two consecutive terms. Arithmetic sequences are also known are arithmetic progressions. |

common difference |
Every arithmetic sequence has a common or constant difference between consecutive terms. For example: In the sequence 5, 8, 11, 14..., the common difference is "3". |

common ratio |
Every geometric sequence has a common ratio, or a constant ratio between consecutive terms. For example in the sequence 2, 6, 18, 54..., the common ratio is 3. |

Explicit |
Explicit formulas define each term in a sequence directly, allowing one to calculate any term in the sequence without knowing the value of the previous terms. |

Explicit formula |
Explicit formulas define each term in a sequence directly, allowing one to calculate any term in the sequence without knowing the value of the previous terms. |

geometric sequence |
A geometric sequence is a sequence with a constant ratio between successive terms. Geometric sequences are also known as geometric progressions. |

index |
The index of a term in a sequence is the term’s “place” in the sequence. |

recursive |
The recursive formula for a sequence allows you to find the value of the n^{th} term in the sequence if you know the value of the (n-1)^{th} term in the sequence. |

sequence |
A sequence is an ordered list of numbers or objects. |
