Abstract [en]

Number sequences can be useful tools for teaching generalization, functions, or variables, for instance. Consequently, there are many studies that have studied students’ perception of number sequences and the strategies used to continue those sequences. However, a large part of the studies have been using arithmetic or quadratic number sequences. In this paper we present a study of students’ strategies to continue non-contextualized geometric number sequences. Interview data from 18 students in grades 9 to 12(age 15-19) (in Sweden) was analysed. Five qualitatively different strategies have been discerned in the data. These strategies are not completely overlapping the strategies previously described in literature.
