New Topic: Sequences, MiA Higher Ch4

By the end of this topic you will:

• know the terms: sequence, nth term, limit as n tends to

• use u_{n} notation for the nth term of a sequence

• define and interpret recurrence relations of the form u_{n+1} = mu_{n} + c

• know condition for limit of sequence from recurrence relation to exist

• find (where possible) and interpret the limit of a sequence resulting from a recurrence relation in a mathematical model
