This unit on sequences and series is intended to help students make the connection from math to real life situations. Developing a marathon training program for a beginner runner is one simple way that students may use patterns in real life. The total mileage per week usually creates a pattern over time. Mathematical operations on patterns, sequences, and series enable students to do the calculations necessary for exploring the pattern. Students also explore nutrition information needed for a training program as proper nutrition is an important part of sports training.
