Understand that sequences are types of functions, sometimes expressed recursively, whose domain is a subset.

Students are given a table of values that is sparsely filled out and asked to come up with:1. a complete table of values2. identify the rate of change3. identify the explicit equation that represents the table of values4. identify a recursive function that represents the table of valuesAnswer Key included
