Thursday, 8/30/18

 I can determine the common difference and "0th term" of an arithmetic sequence, and use these two values to write a general term formula for the arithmetic sequence

I can use the general term for an arithmetic sequence to find a specified terms' value, as well as work backwards to determine whether a given value is, in fact, a term in a particular arithmetic sequence.
