Algebraic Expressions

Learning Objectives:

  1. Recognise the concepts of sequence of numbers
  2. Recognise the preliminary idea of functions

Inquiry-based learning activity and artefacts to be created during task

Students will set up a game on determining whether a random number is in a particular sequence with general term, such as Arithmetic Sequence, Prime Numbers, etc.

How computational thinking is involved in the task

  1. Students will learn that a non-zero remainder in a division can be used by computer to determine whether a certain number belongs to the arithmetic sequence.
  2. Students may also realise that the computer may tackle Mathematics problem by repeated substitution, namely the Brute Force method.
