How to use

The use of this app is quite similar to the Single Variable Calculus Tool. The formula for the sequence is keyed in using 'n' as the variable name. Key in the function a(n) in the cell B4. respectively. The equal to sign must be used so that the cell displays the value corresponding to n=1. Choose the number of terms to be plotted from the drop down box.

For example, to plot the 10 terms geometric sequence (1/2)n, the entries and plot would be as shown in the figure below.
